Public Consultation on the Design Note Direct Market Access (DiMaX)


Public consultation of the stakeholders on the design note related to the Direct Market Access (DiMaX) service, linked to Elia’s Consumer-Centric Market Design (CCMD). 


The future will be defined by a rapid increase in renewables and a huge electrification of industrial and residential appliances. In this context, Elia has called for many years for an optimized market design, the Consumer-Centric Market Design, dealing with this significant challenge in terms of integration into the system. 
Building on this consumer-centric market design, Elia proposes the DiMaX service to facilitate access to the DA and ID power exchanges, to propagate the future real-time price for a full economical optimization of a flexible asset, and finally as well as to decrease barriers to become a BRP.

Elia is convinced that the keys to unleash further flexibility consist in giving an active role to the consumer, at all voltage levels, while giving them the opportunity to use their flexible assets optimally to enable the energy transition.
