ACER Public Workshop on the revision of the rules on the cross-zonal capacity allocation in the long-term electricity markets
What is it about?
Europe’s long-term electricity market relies on so-called long-term transmission rights (LTTRs), which allow market participants to hedge their exposure across bidding zones. The allocation of the LTTRs is currently not coordinated across different borders, which leads to inefficiencies in some capacity calculation regions (CCRs).
Following the receipt of the TSOs’ proposals on 28 September, the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) is now conducting its review of the long-term flow-based allocation methodologies.
- Single allocation platform, including the methodology for sharing cost for its establishment, development and operation;
- Congestion income distribution; and
- Sharing costs incurred to ensure firmness and remuneration of LTTRs.
To make an informed decision, ACER also seeks stakeholder input via a Public Consultation, which runs from 26 October to 23 November 2022.
In this Public Workshop, ACER will:
- Present the proposed amendments to the methodologies;
- Provide clarifications on the purpose, process and content of the proposed amendments.
