ENTSO-E public consultation on the implementation framework for a European platform for the exchange of balancing energy from frequency restoration reserves with automatic activation (“aFRR”)

26.04.2018

This consultation concerns the “All TSOs’ proposal for the implementation framework for the exchange of balancing energy from frequency restoration reserves with automatic activation in accordance with Article 21 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 establishing a guideline on electricity balancing”.

The TSOs responsible for submitting the common proposal for the implementation framework for a European platform for the exchange of aFRR energy shall consult stakeholders as defined in Article 10(3) of the EBGL. More importantly, ENTSO-E and the TSOs are holding this public consultation to receive feedback from stakeholders and market participants, prior to sending the implementation framework proposal to NRAs for their approval.

The consultation will be available on the ENTSO-E page (https://consultations.entsoe.eu/markets/afrr_implementation_framework/) from 26 April 2018 (00:00) until 29 June 2018 (23:59). We encourage all stakeholders and market participants to take part in the consultations, so that the TSOs can consider their views on the European platform for the exchange of aFRR energy. Only sufficient participation can ensure that the platform will successfully serve the needs of all relevant parties involved, be it TSOs, balancing service providers (BSP) or other stakeholders.
