SIDC: New 15 and 30 minutes cross-border intraday products on bidding zone borders between Belgium, Germany, France and The Netherlands

On Thursday 10 December 2020, the NEMOs EPEX SPOT and Nord Pool EMCO and TSOs Amprion, Elia, RTE and TenneT will launch 30 minutes cross-border products in intraday continuous trading on the Belgian-French border as well as 15 and 30 minutes cross-border products in intraday continuous trading on the Belgian-German, Belgian-Dutch and Dutch-German borders.

On Thursday 10 December 2020, the Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) EPEX SPOT and Nord Pool EMCO and Transmission System Operators (TSOs) Amprion, Elia, RTE and TenneT will launch:

  • 30 minutes cross-border products in intraday continuous trading on the Belgian-French border; and
  • 15 and 30 minutes cross-border products in intraday continuous trading on the Belgian-German, Belgian-Dutch and Dutch-German borders.

By the introduction of these products, the TSOs will fulfil the obligation to offer on their borders cross-zonal capacities for the Single Intraday Coupling (SIDC) with least common multiple of the imbalance settlement periods (ISP) at respective sides of the bidding zone border.

The introduction of these products will allow market participants to sell or buy cross-border products with the same resolution as the ISPs of the Belgian, Dutch, French and German-Luxembourgian bidding zones. T

his should enhance the possibilities for imbalance management by market parties, closer to real-time.

Also, the introduction of 15 minutes products on the BE-DE, BE-NL and DE-NL borders and 30 minutes products on BE-FR border, enables Belgian and Dutch market parties to access existing market liquidity of 15 minutes products in Germany and Austria, and 30 minutes products in Germany and France where these cross-border products are already in place.

More details about the implementation are available in the attached document
