Capacity split rules

The above-mentioned monthly capacities are calculated in line with the rules on splitting capacity between different timeframes. The rules are described here: Split Rules. These rules were approved by the relevant regulators.

Net Transfer Capacity (NTC) (Ref. 1)

The Net Transfer Capacity (NTC) is the transfer capacity forecast agreed between Elia and its neighbouring transmission system operators (TSOs) for imports and exports across Belgium’s borders*. In the European regulation 543/2013, it is called forecasted capacity.

Visit Transmission capacity at borders for more information on the calculation mthod.

Proposed capacity (Ref. 2)

In accordance with the above split rules, the “proposed capacity” is calculated before yearly capacity resales are included in the monthly auction.

Capacity for auction (Ref. 3)

“Capacity for auction” is the sum of the proposed capacity and the resales of yearly capacity to the monthly auction. Monthly capacities are sold on the market via explicit auctions organised by JAO.EU, the joint auction office set up by a group of TSOs (including Elia). In the European regulation 543/2013, it is called offered capacity.

Visit Cross-border mechanisms for more information on current mechanisms.

 

*please note that the monthly NTC between Belgium and Great Britain are currently ELIA values only
