Consultation on Proposed GB Use of Congestion Income Methodology

< Back to index

Article 19(4) of the Retained Electricity Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/943 as amended by Regulation 7 and paragraph 18 of Schedule 4 of the Electricity and Gas (Internal Markets and Network Codes) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 (2020 No. 1006) (the ‘Retained Regulation’) puts a requirement on GB TSOs to propose a methodology outlining conditions for the use of congestion income (UCI) revenues, in accordance with the provisions of that Retained Regulation.

Interested GB TSOs have worked together to draft this proposed GB UCI methodology, which is now published for consultation (in line with the provisions of Article 19). We would like to invite stakeholder feedback on the methodology. Attached here is the proposed methodology and a supporting explanatory document which provides further context.

Please provide your feedback to by Tuesday 12 July 2022.

Nemo Link consults on changes to non-IEM Explicit Day Ahead Auctions

< Back to index

Nemo Link already has in place a set of Non-IEM Access Rules that have been approved and will be operational from 1st January 2021 when GB leaves the IEM. This consultation proposes some minor adjustments to those trading rules, and if supported by market participants, could be implemented in Q1 2021 subject to regulatory approval.

The initial Nemo Link Non-IEM access rules were developed to enable continued trading in the event GB left the Internal Energy Market.  At the time, it was necessary to focus mainly on established operational processes to ensure a robust and smooth handover.  However, over the Brexit transition period, we have had the opportunity to assess and discuss in greater depth whether the current Non-IEM access rules can be better optimised to deliver the most efficient trading environment.

Consultation topics
The main topics of the consultation are summarised below:

  • Day Ahead Firmness Deadline changed from 11:00 to 09:00 (Appendix 1 Article 58)
  • LT Nomination window timing changed from 09:00 to 08:45 (Appendix 2 Article 6)
  • Adjustment to the timings of the explicit day ahead capacity auction that will replace the implicit day ahead auction. Nemo Link proposes moving the opening time from 09:40 to 09:00 CE(S)T (Appendix 3 Article 26)
  • Day Ahead Nomination window shortening from 12:05-14:00 to 12:05 to 13:30 (Appendix 5 Annex to the Explicit Day Ahead and Intraday Nomination Rules Paragraph 1)

In addition, Nemo Link would like to invite feedback from market participants on the following topics:

  • Do you agree a Day Ahead energy auction in GB earlier than SDAC could lead to more efficient interconnector trading?
  • How important is a single GB power reference price?

We welcome all market participant and stakeholder comments or questions on the proposals by email to by 18:00 CET 13th November 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact the Customer Team.

Consultation on Non-IEM Long Term Allocation & Nomination Rules

< Back to index

Just when you’d thought Brexit had gone away, here comes another Brexit related consultation!

As Nemo Link market participants will be aware, the rules governing trade on Nemo Link in the event of a hard Brexit were approved by the regulators in February.  However, those rules focused solely on the movement from Day Ahead implicit to Day Ahead explicit trading.  This further consultation therefore describes rules that would also apply for Long Term products if the GB leaves the Internal Energy Market.  Market participants were invited to review the proposals and send any feedback by 14th June 2019 to
