ACER adopts amendment on determination of capacity calculation regions

Friday, April 5, 2019

The Decision temporarily alters bidding zone border configuration between Denmark and the Netherlands, and Greece and Italy

ACER adopted a Decision based on the proposal of the EU TSOs for the amendment of the determination of capacity calculation regions. The amendment was referred to ACER after National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) failed to agree on whether or not to approve the proposal.

The Decision temporarily assigns a new border between the bidding zones of Denmark and the Netherlands to the Hansa capacity calculation region. ACER requested further information from TSOs to analyse the optimal determination of the Hansa and Channel regions.

ACER also amended the determination of the Greece-Italy (GRIT) capacity calculation region so as to bring it in line with the changes to bidding zone borders resulting from the recent review of the same in Italy.
