NCC approved the generation and load data provision methodology


NCC implements EU requirements for integration of a common regional electricity market. According to EU regulation 2015/1222 of July 24, 2015 establishing guidelines on capacity allocation and congestion management the generation and load data provision methodology provides rules for production and load data that are required to calculate capacity and allocate between individual systems that belong to the separate countries.

Approved Generation and Load Data provision methodology obligates responsible electricity entity to provide data on generation unit and load equipment technical characteristics, data related to the operational availability, information on generation unit working schedule and load distribution data to the transmission system operator.
