Public consultation on a request for derogation to the deadline to the use of European platform for mFRR
TopicElia consults on a request for derogation to the deadline to the use of the European platform for mFRR. In this document, the reasons for the derogation request is explained in accordance with EBGL article 62.
Today, November 23th, 2021, Elia launches a public consultation of the stakeholders on the derogation to the deadline to the use of European platform for mFRR.
The European Guideline on Electricity Balancing (EBGL) defines the regulatory framework concerning the building of a European platform for mFRR energy exchanges. Since 2017, all TSOs are cooperating and developing this European platform for mFRR energy exchanges through the European project called “MARI” (Manually Activated Reserves Initiative).
The deadline for the delivery of the European mFRR platform and the connection to it by all TSOs, as stipulated by regulation, is set to 24th July 2022.
Based on the elements further detailed in this note and on external feedbacks received from Belgian stakeholders, Elia decided to submit to CREG a request for derogation to the deadline to the use of the European platform for mFRR according to EBGL article 62.
This derogation is the object of the present consultation.
This consultation aims to receive any comments from market participants and relevant stakeholders regarding the consulted document and the consultation period is set from Tuesday November 23 to Tuesday December 14, 2021.
