, SEE Energy News

The Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) and Transmission System Operators (TSOs) from Austria, Germany, Poland and the 4M Market Coupling (4M MC) countries, namely the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia, informed stakeholders that the member tests have been concluded successfully between 31 May and 7 June.

The go-live of the project is planned for 17 June 2021 (first trading day, with delivery day on 18 June 2021), subject to confirmation of technical and legal readiness by all parties. The DE-AT-PL-4M MC Project, also referred to as Interim Coupling aims to connect the borders of 4M MC with the Multi-Regional Coupling (MRC) by introducing Net Transmission Capacity based (NTC -based) implicit capacity allocation on six borders (PL-DE, PL-CZ, PLSK, CZ-DE, CZ-AT, HU-AT). This will mark the start of the so-called enduring phase of SDAC, during which there will be one European Single Day-Ahead Coupling only, where MRC and 4M MC are coupled.
