The European Union Agency for the
Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) publishes a Decision on the principles
for sharing the costs of ensuring firmness and remuneration of long-term
transmission rights (LTTRs).
The Decision determines two sets of rules
for sharing the costs incurred by Transmission System Operators (TSOs):
• The first principle regulates the costs incurred in case of long-term
cross-zonal capacity's curtailment before the day-ahead firmness deadline. This
can happen to ensure the operation remains within the operational security
• The second principle manages the costs incurred to remunerate the
long-term transmission rights after the re-allocation of cross-zonal capacity to
the single day-ahead coupling.
The principles will be applied together
with the regional capacity calculation methodologies.
