P409 ‘Aligning BMRS Reporting Requirements with the Clean Energy Package’

Current Status

Initial Written Assessment
Assessment Procedure
Report Phase
With Authority
Awaiting Implementation


The EU’s Clean Energy Package requires that:

“Transmission system operators or their delegated operators shall publish, as close to real time as possible but with a delay after delivery of no more than 30 minutes, the current system balance of their scheduling areas, the estimated imbalance prices and the estimated balancing energy prices”

BSC systems are compliant with this requirement in practice, however BSC Section V is not aligned to current BSC system functionality or the Clean Energy Package, requiring that these data items are published within 45 minutes and therefore creating potential ambiguity for market participants. Section V should therefore be updated to ensure the BSC is aligned with the Clean Energy Package and eliminate any ambiguity.
