The four TSOs participate equally in the share capital of the new company. The electricity transmission system operators of Greece (ADMIE), Italy (Terna), Romania (Transelectrica) and Bulgaria (ESO) announced the establishment of the Southeast Electricity Network Coordination Center (SEleNe CC) in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Under the European regulatory framework, SEleNe CC’s main responsibilities regarding regional network security will be the operational planning security analysis (also known as coordinated security analysis), outage planning coordination, coordinated capacity calculation, short- and very short-term adequacy forecasts and individual and common grid modeling and data set delivery.

CEO of newly established company Ioannis Kampouris said that the establishment of SEleNe CC is a critical step towards the closer and more efficient cooperation of the TSOs of the EU member states in SE Europe in terms of security of supply and security of the electricity networks. The expected coupling of the respective markets will be the next step in harmonizing and integrating the region into the single European electricity market with significant benefits for consumers. This development is the result of a collective effort and was made possible thanks to the coordinated actions of all TSOs.
