Public consultation on the proposal of review of the Terms and Conditions applicable to providers of voltage and reactive power control service (T&C VSP)

Topic

Elia is organising a public consultation on the proposal of review of the Terms and Conditions applicable to providers of voltage and reactive power control service (T&C VSP). The document subject to consultation constitutes a proposal of review by Elia regarding the T&C VSP following CREG’s decisions (B)2080 and (B)2228.

Context

The first proposal of the Terms and Conditions applicable to providers of voltage and reactive power control service (VSPs) including the standard contract for the delivery of the voltage and reactive power control service (T&C VSP) was approved by the CREG on May 28th 2020 in decision (B)2080  until the end of the year 2021. These T&C VSP translated the design evolution of the service for reactive power and voltage control that was first described in a design note published in 2018.

In 2021, Elia introduced in concertation with market parties a proposal to extend the validity of this first version of the T&C VSP until the end of the year 2022. This validity prolongation was approved by the CREG in April 29th 2021 (in decision (B)2228) until the end of the year 2022. 

The decision (B)2228 states that a new version of the T&C VSP is to be submitted to the CREG for the 31 December 2021 considering

  1. The remarks included in the CREG decision (B)2080 
    • Paragraphs: 10, 13, 25, 47, 55, 57, 59, 72, 82, 83, 95, 96, 100, 102, 121
  2. The available return of experience from the delivery of the service 

  3. The applicable legal framework at that moment

The document subject to consultation constitutes a proposal of review by Elia regarding the T&C VSP following CREG’s decisions (B)2080 and (B)2228. The scope of this consultation is limited to the modifications related to the Specific Conditions of the T&C VSP. The General Conditions are part of a separate consultation, as they also apply to other Terms and Conditions for different services. 
As no adaptation of the relevant and applicable legislation has taken place since last revision of the T&C VSP (e.g. no adaptation of the Article 12 quinquies of the Law of 29 April 1999 on the organization of the electricity market). Elia’s proposal of adaptation of the T&C VSP is based on the two first points mentioned above.

Period

Elia invites all stakeholders to submit any comments and suggestions they may have on the proposal submitted for consultation.
The consultation period runs from Friday 12th of November to Monday 13th of December 2021 included. 

After the consultation period, Elia collects all comments and feedback from the market parties. Elia will analyse these comments and integrate them into a consultation report together with Elia’s responses. In addition to the consultation report, Elia will publish the reactions of the market parties (including names) on the website, unless it is explicitly stated that the contribution is to be considered confidential.
