The Utility Regulator has published its decision to request amendment to the all TSOs’ proposal for common settlement rules applicable to all intended exchanges of energy as a result of the reserve replacement process, frequency restoration process with manual and automatic activation and the imbalance netting process. This was submitted in accordance with Article 50(1) of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 of 23 November 2017, establishing a guideline on electricity balancing (EBGL).
As a result of development of the implementation frameworks according to Articles 19, 20, 21 and 22 of the EBGL, there will be cross-border exchange of balancing and netted energy defined as intended exchange of energy by the EBGL. The proposal divides the intended exchange of energy, resulting from frequency restoration reserves with automatic activation (aFRR), frequency restoration reserves with manual activation (mFRR), replacement reserves (RR) and imbalance netting platform, in to the intended exchange. It is proposed that the intended exchange volumes will be settled separately per product (with an additional differentiation between mFRR with scheduled and direct activation types).
The all Regulatory Authorities’ agreement reached on 23 July 2019, attached as an annex to this decision letter, constitutes the reason for the decision.
