General information about RSCs
Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) are companies that are established by and belong to Transmission System Operators (TSO), such as IPTO, their main objective being to maintain the operational security of the Electricity System at European level. RSC customers are the TSOs, which receive specialised services (European Requirement), such as advanced calculation of composite elements of the grid at regional level, through computer models created exclusively to meet the needs of their region, such as the Southeast Europe region). This why the establishment of RSCs is one of the most important steps towards the integration of Europe’s synchronous energy zones.
In this framework, four Transmission System Operators of Europe, IPTO (Greece), ESO-EAD (Bulgaria), TERNA SpA (Italy) and Transelectrica (Romania), on 22 May 2020 established an RSC under the name SEleNe CC (Southeast Electricity Network Coordination Center), seated in Thessaloniki, which is the energy center of Southeast Europe and of the Greek-Italian borders.
