The Electricity System Operator (ESO) has announced that in compliance with Article 6 (9) of Regulation (EU) 2019/943 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 June 2019 on the internal market for electricity, it will organize daily tenders for balancing capacities.
Article 6 (9) from the Regulation states:
“The procurement of upward balancing capacity and downward balancing capacity shall be carried out separately, unless the regulatory authority approves a derogation from this principle on the basis that this would result in higher economic efficiency as demonstrated by an evaluation performed by the transmission system operator. Contracts for balancing capacity shall not be concluded more than one day before the provision of the balancing capacity and the contracting period shall be no longer than one day, unless and to the extent that the regulatory authority has approved the earlier contracting or longer contracting periods to ensure the security of supply or to improve economic efficiency.”
Therefore, ESO informs the market participants about the transition to conducting only daily tender procedures for obtaining all legally required balancing reserves (FCR, aFRR, mFRR) for power system management. In this regard, monthly tender procedures for October will not be held, and the individual daily tender procedures will start from 30.09.2021. with delivery period next day.
