The Austrian-Slovenian market coupling project parties today confirm the successful launch of Day-Ahead market coupling on the Austrian-Slovenian border (AT-SI). This latest achievement is another important milestone towards a single integrated European power market.

The AT-SI Market Coupling is operational as of today, with delivery on 22 July. The Day-Ahead capacity for the AT-SI border is now implicitly allocated through the Price Coupling of Regions (PCR) solution, a set of harmonised procedures already in operation across Europe, making this border a part of the pan-European Multi-Regional Coupling (MRC).

Currently the combined Day-Ahead markets of MRC cover 19 European countries, accounting for about 2,800 TWh of yearly electricity consumption. The daily average cleared volume over these countries amounts to over 3.6 TWh.
