Now in consultation: Special regulation as countertrade model on DK1-DE following Joint Declaration

Energinet is proposing to continue the current use of special regulation as model for conducting the countertrade resulting from the Joint Declaration.

The Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy of the Federal Republic of Germany together with the Danish Energy Regulatory Authority and Bundesnetzagentur have signed an agreement that ensures a minimum amount of capacity for trade between Jutland and Germany. Energinet and TenneT, as the relevant transmission system operators of both countries, are jointly responsible for the implementation of this agreement.

In order to ensure sufficient balancing resources for system security needs and to support a cost-efficient management of minimum capacities at the DK1-DE border, Energinet and TenneT have analysed several possible countertrade models, and published the final impact assessment December 1st 2017 Read more.

Energinet asks for feedback on the justification and selection of the countertrade model for up- and downward regulation in Energinet’s control area, following the requirements from the Joint Declaration between the Danish and German Ministries.
