Formal public consultation on the CRM Functioning Rules


Elia launches a formal public consultation of the stakeholders from Friday 1st of December 2023 to Friday 12th of January 2024 on the Functioning Rules of the Belgian Capacity Remuneration Mechanism (“CRM”).


This public consultation takes place in accordance with Art. 7 undecies §12 of the Electricity Act.

This proposal contains the modifications Elia wishes to make to the current set of Functioning Rules as set by the Royal Decree of 30 May 2021 (Dutch – French). The main suggested changes have been presented to the stakeholders in the Adequacy Working Group. After the public consultation, a consultation report will be drafted, the Functioning Rules will be updated on the basis of received comments and will be formally submitted for approval to CREG by 1st of February 2024 at the latest. The formal validation process of this set of Functioning Rules applicable for the Y-1 auction for the delivery period starting 1st of November 2025 and for the Y-4 auction for the delivery period starting 1st of November 2028 is foreseen to be finalized with a publication by Elia and the CREG at the latest by 15th of May 2024. The text is then the subject of a Royal Decree published in the Belgian Official Gazette.
