2015 - Modifications to the ARP contract

Consultation relating to the modifications to the ARP contract proposed by Elia

Elia is launching a formal public consultation of the market players on proposed modifications to the Access Responsible Party (ARP) contract. The changes to this contract are mostly required to take account of the evolutions of the ‘European Harmonized Auction Rules’ (EU HAR) for 2016 and the functioning rules for strategic reserve for the winter of 2015-2016. The purpose of this consultation is to receive any remarks that the market players affected by the proposals might have.

The consultation period for modifications to the ARP Contract runs from 29 June 2015 to 28 July 2015.

The following documents can be consulted:

Responses can be sent to Elia until 28 July 2015, 6:00 p.m., at the following e-mail address: usersgroup@elia.be, or, for any questions, please contact isabelle.gerkens@elia.be or usersgroup@elia.be.

These reactions (with names) will be included in the official application file for approval of the changes to the ARP contract to be sent to the regulatory authorities. Elia will draft a consultation report (in French) that will be made available to all market players. If the market players so request, their responses will be handled anonymously in this consultation report.

In connection with this formal consultation, Elia will communicate the useful information to the Users’ Group during the meeting of 2nd of July.
