One year after the application date of the Network Code on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms (NC CAM), the Agency publishes today an Implementation Monitoring Report in which it presents the achievements as well as shortcomings and delays in the implementation process of the NC CAM. The Agency urges Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to promptly implement all the remaining provisions of the EU legislation, giving priority to capacity bundling, virtual interconnection points and capacity maximisation.
The NC CAM applies to European Interconnection Points (IPs) since 1 November 2015. The Agency is in charge of monitoring the implementation of the Network Codes and evaluating their effects.
The first NC CAM report exhibits a total average implementation level of 82% of NC CAM provisions across the Member States. The implementation level is high on the core requirements such as the auctioning of standard capacity products via booking platforms (94%). Nevertheless, a full implementation was only achieved by Belgium and the UK, while a few Member States are lagging behind.
The Agency also calculated certain monitoring indicators for 2014 and 2015 in order to start evaluating possible effects of the NC CAM application. The underlying data stems from publicly available sources, such as ENTSOG’s Transparency Platform and the Capacity Booking Platform PRISMA.
