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.
The decision of the EU national regulatory
authorities on the methodology of generation and load data provision was
adopted on October 28, 2016 in the Energy Regulators Forum. According to the EU
law, each regulatory agency has to approve the terms and conditions (or
methodologies of) developed by transmission system operators and market
operators at national level within six months. NCC approved the Generation and
load data provision methodology on January 13, 2017.
