First ACER Report on the implementation of the CACM Regulation and the FCA Regulation available online
The Agency publishes today its first monitoring report on the implementation of the Guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM Regulation) and the Guideline on Forward Capacity Allocation (FCA Regulation). The CACM Regulation lays down the binding guidelines for the implementation and operation of EU-wide single market coupling in the day ahead and intraday timeframe. The FCA Regulation lays down detailed rules on cross-zonal capacity calculation and allocation in the forward timeframe. Both regulations aim at facilitating electricity trading across the European Union.
The report describes the status of the implementation and application of both regulations across the EU Member States. The CACM Regulation is applicable since 14 August 2015, whereas the FCA Regulation is applicable since 17 October 2016.
In its first report, beyond the assessment of compliance, the Agency identifies difficulties faced in implementing these regulations. The Agency provided conclusions and recommendations across the EU.
