Scope: continuous knowledge building is a constant need for national energy regulatory authorities, in particular having in mind the high complexity and broad expertise required for pro-active and effective regulation of energy markets. This challenge increases with new pieces of legislation becoming applicable in the Energy Community Contracting Parties, most of which involving direct responsibilities and new duties of regulators. The Energy Community Regulatory School aims at supporting the technical knowledge of the Energy Community Contracting national energy regulatory authorities to effectively implement and efficiently apply new pieces of Energy Community acquis communautaire – such as but not limited to gas and electricity network codes and guidelines or REMIT and linked increasingly developing market activities such as trade or market coupling. Beyond the mere legal aspects, the Energy Community Regulatory School is dedicated to deliver practical insights and share experience made on EU level. Praxis oriented, interactive and in-depth discussions will be in the core of the training courses tailor made for the Contracting Parties’ regulators.
the national energy regulatory authorities of the Energy Community Contracting Parties and Observers. Subject to place availability, events are in principle also open to other participants of the Energy Community Contracting Parties and Observers.
Organisation and costs:
courses are organised by the Energy Community Secretariat. The Energy Community Secretariat reimburses participants of the national energy regulatory authorities of the Energy Community Contracting Parties and Observers as indicated for each course individually
course participants receive an attendance certificate.
Electricity / Course on Coordinated Capacity Calculation
Context: Article 21 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management (CACM Regulation) foresees a common capacity calculation methodology for a capacity calculation region. ACER Decision 6/2016 defines the common border between Romania, Bulgaria and Greece as forming the so-called 10th Capacity Calculation Region (CCR) which shall be expanded to the Western Balkan Contracting Parties, subject to them implementing the CACM Regulation (the so-called “Shadow 10th CCR”). Under the Western Balkan 6 (WB6) Initiative’s CONNECTA program, the Energy Community Secretariat provides technical assistance setting out the main principles for a Coordinated Capacity Calculation methodology for the day-ahead market time frame in the Shadow 10th CCR. Implementation of related recommendations are envisaged as regulatory support to the market coupling projects established under the WB6 process.
Scope: this course targets in-depth discussion of the coordinated capacity calculation methodology developed under the WB6 initiative as well as knowledge gaining from the developments on other CCRs and in particular in the 10th CCR regarding coordinated capacity calculation. Dwelling into the processes of TSOs in performing capacity calculation and national regulatory authorities in assessing, monitoring and understand the impact will be the key objective.
