Implementation plan for a new aFRR design and a separated procurement of FCR and aFRR products

Elia presented the new aFRR design to the stakeholders via a public consultation that was organized between the 3rd of September 2018 and the 30th of September 2018. Based on the feedback of the public consultation, Elia has updated the aFRR design note and has drafted a consultation report. All information can be found on the website of Elia.

Elia has also presented the study concerning the “separated procurement of FCR and aFRR products” to the stakeholders and organized a public consultation between the 20th of April and the 22nd of May. The feedback on this study is summarized in the consultation report. All information can be found on the website of Elia.

Given the fact that the implementation of a new aFRR design and the separated procurement of FCR and aFRR products are highly linked, Elia has decided to perform a combined consultation.

Elia has presented a proposal for an implementation plan concerning:

  • Part I: the new aFRR design (including a recommendation on ToE)
  • Part II: the separated procurement of FCR and aFRR products

In addition, Elia has included a further description in the consultation document about two other topics:

  • A description on how data will be collected for the aFRR settlement for non-CIPU assets on both the TSO and (C)DSO grid.
  • A proposal for the capacity tender with a combined procurement of 24-hour blocks and 4-hour blocks. Also the timings of the capacity tenders for FCR, aFRR and mFRR are described.

A consultation was organized from the 9th of November 2018 until the 5th of December 2018. The aim of the consultation was to gather feedback from the stakeholders on the proposal for the implementation plan for the new aFRR design and for the separated procurement of FCR and aFRR products.

Elia has received feedback on the design note from the following stakeholders:

ELIA has processed the stakeholder feedback and has summarized this feedback in the consultation report. ELIA has updated the aFRR implementation plan accordingly as described in the consultation report.
