What is it about?
Early in 2021, the National Regulatory Authorities for energy from the Hansa, Core and Baltic regions asked the European Union Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) to decide on the respective market-based cross-border capacity allocation process for the exchange of balancing capacity in their region.
This request follows the Article 41 of the Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 establishing a Guideline on Electricity Balancing (EB Regulation).
Additionally, regulators from the Core region asked ACER to decide on the regional cross-border capacity allocation process for the exchange of balancing capacity to be based on economic efficiency in accordance with Article 42 of the EB Regulation.
ACER is now collecting comments from stakeholders in order to take an informed decision.
All interested parties are invited to submit their inputs by 2 May 2021, 23:59 hrs (CET).

The cross-border capacity allocation methodologies ensure efficient, transparent, and non-discriminatory capacity allocation for the exchange of balancing capacity or sharing of reserves.
The market-based process applies in case the allocation takes place not more than a week in advance of the provision of balancing capacity, while the process based on economic efficiency applies in case the allocation takes place more than one week in advance of the provision of balancing capacity.
