CRE validates RTE’s requests for renewal of derogation for CORE capacity calculation region over the second semester 2020.
CRE has validated RTE’s requests for renewal of derogation regarding the minimum 70% capacity requirement for cross zonal trades, for CORE capacity calculation region, over the second half of 2020.
Within the framework of the derogation authorized by the Clean Energy Package, CRE has approved, in December 2019, three requests for derogations submitted for the following capacity calculation regions:
- For the North Italian borders capacity calculation region: the derogation for a period of one year is to guarantee compliance with the 70% threshold for at least 70% of the time
- For the South West Europe capacity calculation region: the derogation for a period of one year is to guarantee compliance with the 70% threshold for at least 70% of the time.
- For the Core capacity calculation region (specifically covering the perimeter of the historical Central-Western Europe region): the derogation, for a duration of 6 months, is to continue to ensure the current minimum threshold of available capacity for cross-zonal exchanges of 20% (20% minRAM).
The North Italian and South West Europe derogations apply throughout 2020.
The renewal on CORE in the second half of the year is aligned with the first derogation by ensuring the current minimum threshold of available capacity for cross-zonal exchanges of 20% (20%minRAM).
Development carried out by RTE since the end of 2019 aimed at providing tools to measure and validate capacities, where if relevant, use a significant amount of remedial actions while guaranteeing operational security. The first 6-month derogation allowed the development of the monitoring tool. However, the containment period and the resulting prioritization did not make it possible to finalize all the developments simultaneously. A 6-month renewal of the derogation is therefore necessary to finalize the validation tool.
This derogation renewal submitted by RTE have been the subject of a consultation with all of the regulators of the region concerned and did not bring about any comments or opposition.
The CRE thus approved this request during its deliberation of 18 June 2020: link.
