Consultation on the Nordic TSOs proposal for arrangements concerning more than one nominated electricity market operator (NEMO) in a bidding zone

This consultation concerns a common proposal developed by the Nordic Transmission System Operators regarding arrangements concerning more than one NEMO in a bidding zone in accordance with Article 45 and 57 of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a Guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM).

The approval of the TSOs proposal is a task for each induvial energy regulator. However, as the Nordic TSOs have developed a common proposal and the Nordic energy regulators are working closely on this matter, a NordREG consultation will be held.

Consultation on NordREG-report on measures to support the functioning of the Nordic financial electricity market

NordREG launches a market consultation on the report:

The report was commissioned by NordREG in light of the recent development of the Guideline on Forward Capacity Allocation (FCA). The report describes potential measures to consider in cases where insufficient hedging opportunities have been identified in certain bidding areas. The consultants were asked to describe and analyse different models for TSO involvement in the forward electricity market in order to facilitate improved hedging possibilities.

NordREG welcomes written input and comments to the report within the 31st of March 2016. Comments (in English) can be sent to:

Further, NordREG is planning a workshop with market participants and TSOs during the first half of 2016, to discuss the input from the consultation and to identify next steps. More information will follow.

Entry barriers; Public Consultation and Hearing

NordREG has commissioned the consultant VaasaETT to map the regulatory framework and other conditions that a supplier and energy service provider faces when entering the national Nordic electricity markets. VaasaETT has made several interviews and carried out a questionnaire during the summer and early fall of 2014. The findings are presented in the report “Market Entrant Processes, Hurdles and Suggestions in the Nordic Energy Market – the View of the Market”. This report presents hurdles and barriers for market actors such as suppliers and Energy Services Companies (ESCO’s) entering and operating in the Nordic market. The report gives important input and understanding of what challenges these market actors face. NordREG may use the results as input when planning the continuation of the Nordic harmonisation.

Public Consultation until 3rd November

NordREG invites you to participate in a public consultation of the report “Market Entrant Processes, Hurdles and Suggestions in the Nordic Energy Market – the View of the Market”.

Public Hearing on tax risk management on future Nordic retail market Public

Two new consultant reports “Credit risk management in future billing regime” and “Tax collection in the common Nordic retail market” will are ready for public consultation.

During the autumn NordREG presented one NordREG report and two consultant reports covering; rules and responsibilities, billing regimes in the future supplier centric model and a CBA for future billing regimes. These reports did not fully cover questions related to risk management and tax collection in the upcoming Nordic electricity market. Therefore NordREG, during late autumn, launched two calls aiming to answer these questions. Ernst & Young won that process and will present their findings during the public consultation in Helsinki Airport Congress 22nd of March 13:00-15:30 (Finnish time).
