What is it about?
The National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) for energy from Finland and Sweden asked the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) to decide on how to address the insufficient risk hedging opportunities on the bidding zone borders between Finland and Sweden.
An assessment performed by the NRAs indicated insufficient hedging opportunities in the Finnish bidding zone. To improve this, NRAs can request their Transmission System Operators either to issue long-term transmission rights or to ensure the availability of other long-term cross-zonal hedging products that support the functioning of the wholesale electricity markets.
As the NRAs could not reach an agreement, they referred the decision to ACER.
ACER is now collecting views from stakeholders in order to take an informed decision.
All interested parties are invited to submit their responses by 3 May 2022, 23:59 hrs (CET).
