ENTSO-E and EDSO for Smart Grids welcome applications from R&D projects to display their work at the InnoGrid2020+ conference, the not-to be-missed annual event on innovation in electricity networks. This year's conference will address the ‘Network of Networks’ and is scheduled in Brussels on 26-27 June 2017.
Sixteen transmissions system operators (TSOs) are cooperating to create a Core capacity calculation region that will cover most of continental Europe. In this Core region they will adopt common methodologies to calculate and optimise cross-border transmission capacity. This will increase cross-border trade without endangering security of supply. This important move towards an integrated energy market was made possible by the EU network codes - a European code of conduct for the power system that is about to be completed this year with new rules on the Balancing market.
Bernard Energy (BEA); the European Distribution System Operators’ Association for Smart Grids (EDSO for Smart Grids); the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E); the Union of the Electricity Industry - EURELECTRIC (EURELECTRIC) and the Florence School of Regulation (FSR) have the pleasure to announce the launch of the 1st Scholarship Award in Memoriam of Ana Aguado.
Today ENTSO-E releases its recommendations for the cooperation of ENTSO-E with third-country TSOs and is adopted in accordance with Article 8(3)(c) Regulation (EC) No 714 / 2009.
This week the European Technology and Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) presents long term key priorities to enable the transition towards a reliable and sustainable European electricity system with very high shares of renewables. Overall the roadmap estimates that 2.5 billion euros investments in Research and Innovation are needed over the next 10 years to help manage Europe’s Energy Transition as a system.
ENTSO-E has launched a web-based public consultation on Harmonised Allocation Rules for long-term transmission rights and invites all interested parties to submit comments by 17 February 2017. ENTSO-E is also organising a stakeholder workshop on 7 February 2017 in Brussels to provide information about, and receive feedback on, the draft Harmonised Allocation Rules.
In the summer of 2016, all TSOs submitted the Common Grid Model Methodology (CGMM) as well as the Generation and Load Data Provision Methodology (GLDPM) to all regulatory authorities (NRAs) for approval under Regulation 2015/1222 (“CACM Guideline”). Stakeholders had earlier been consulted on these documents and the public consultation included a workshop held at ENTSO-E Secretariat on 18 February 2016.
ACER and ENTSO-E call on EU associations involved in the Electricity sector to express their interest to participate in the System Operation European Stakeholder Committee.
To support the implementation of the Electricity Balancing Guideline (EB GL), several pilot initiatives have been set up. The common market for procurement and exchange of Frequency Containment Reserve (FCR) constitutes such a project.
