What is it about?
Multipliers are factors used to set tariffs for short term products (e.g. daily, monthly).
The NC TAR sets obligations for national regulatory authorities to consult on multipliers. In parallel with these processes, ACER will issue a recommendation by 1 April 2021 to limit the value of multipliers and therefore for short term products.
For this purpose, the Agency will assess the impact of multipliers on:
changes in booking behaviour
impact on the transmission services revenue and its recovery
differences between the level of transmission tariffs applicable for two consecutive tariff periods
cross-subsidisation between network users having contracted yearly and non-yearly standard capacity products
impact on cross-border flows.
