<br>Netting in intraday trade Austria&lt;->Slovenia<br>&nbsp;

12/15/2011

We would like to inform market participants that as of January 1, 2012 ELES and APG will  improve the intraday process on their common border.

The Intraday Rules will be updated due to the change in the process of intraday ATC calculation where netting of schedules is applied after each successful matching of intraday schedules. According to the old Rules the netting of schedules was done only after successful matching of day ahead schedules. The main purpose of this change is to further increase the intraday capacity available to the market participants.

The new Rules shall enter into force as of January 1, 2012.

All participants already registered for the intraday allocation process for 2011 are only requested to send the new Statement of Acceptance (from Annex 1 of the Rules) via fax to the number +386 1 474 2652 and the original by post. All other participants are kindly requested to follow participation requirements as stated in the Rules.
