Public consultation - Modifications for 2013

Modifications in 2013 to the Elia Access Contract and ARP Contract

Elia will formally consult the market players on proposed modifications to the access contract and ARP contract. The changes to these contracts are required owing to the modified Elia tariffs for the period 2012-2015 and to the development of new balancing products as well as changes to certain administrative processes. The purpose of the consultation is to receive any remarks that the relevant market players affected by the proposals might have. All responses received in this connection will be passed on to the regulators at the time of the official request for approval to change the contracts.

The consultation period for Modifications in 2013 to the Access Contract and ARP Contract runs from 15 July 2013 to 31 August 2013.
