Today member states approved the last of the eighth network codes – the Balancing Guideline.
The ITC mechanism functions according to the terms defined in the ITC Agreement, compensating transmission system operators for costs associated with hosting transit flows (i.e. facilitating the transfer of power between two countries). This mechanism aims to incentivise the hosting of cross border flows and to facilitate the creation of an effectively competitive pan-European electricity market.
According to the review of 2016, ENTSO-E has seen the satisfaction with its work increase: the Advisory Council, a more visionary approach but also efforts to communicate with a wider audience, including NGOs, and to follow up on feedback received have been mentioned in results and led to a four percent increase in the rating, compared to the previous year.
ENTSO-E is pleased to confirm that the public consultation on the draft Common Grid Model Methodology as well as the draft Generation and Load Data Provision Methodology, both revised in line with the requirements set out in Regulation 2016/1719 and referred to as "CGMM-v2" and "GLDPM-v2", respectively, is opening on Monday 06 March 2017. Comments on the methodologies can be submitted via a web form link included in the documents.
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.
