NCC approved the All Baltic Capacity Calculation Region TSOs’ common methodology for coordinated redispatching and countertrading


On 14 of February, 2019 in accordance with Article 35 of the Commission Regulation 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management NCC approved the All Baltic Capacity Calculation Region TSOs’ common methodology for coordinated redispatching and countertrading (Methodology). The Methodology was prepared by the transmission system operators (TSO) of the Baltic Capacity Calculation Region (Baltic CCR) - Estonia, Latvia, Sweden, Poland and Finland.

The approved Methodology aims to coordinate the actions of the Baltic CCR TSOs in order to effectively eliminate the congestion of cross-border networks, regardless of whether the causes of physical congestion lie outside or inside the area controlled by these operators.

The Methodology complements Capacity Calculation Methodology of Baltic CCR in promoting effective competition (by relieving congestions) in the generation and supply of electricity, ensuring optimal use of the transmission infrastructure by effective use and coordination of redispatching and countertrading resources between TSOs contributing to the efficient electricity transmission system and electricity market within the EU.
