The project parties involved in the day-ahead Core Flow-Based Market Coupling project (Core FB MC) are announcing the successful go-live of the project on 08/06/2022. The successful go-live of Core FB MC is the result of the close cooperation between all involved NEMOs, TSOs and regulatory authorities.
Additionally, today as part of the Core FB MC project also market coupling is implemented between Croatia and Hungary, marking another major achievement in the completion of the European target model. Furthermore, also a completely new interconnector and electricity border was implemented on the border of Slovenia and Hungary, which is now already part of Core Flow-based allocation and will go-live commercially at the beginning of July.
About the Day-Ahead Flow-Based Market Coupling project in the Core CCR
The Core Flow-Based Market Coupling (Core FB MC) project promotes the development and implementation of a flow-based day-ahead market coupling across the whole Core capacity calculation region (Core CCR) including the implementation of the day ahead coupling of Croatian and Hungarian markets, in the framework of the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC). The Core CCR consists of the bidding zone borders between the following EU Member States’ bidding zones: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Market integration is core to the energy transition.
The energy transition towards a carbon-free electricity supply is a European challenge that requires the use of the European electricity system to the full extent. Weather-dependent supply and increasing demand response will lead to a different and more intense grid use. The Core market integration process aims to create operational preconditions to optimise the use of the system from a regional perspective and make the single European market a reality.
