Rules regarding nomination of cross-border schedules

The following table contains information that affects schedules in different ways depending on the allocation mechanism and the border. For general information on schedule nominations, please use the links in the box on the right.

The scheduling rules are subject to change. In the event of a change in the rules, all balancing group representatives in the APG control area will be notified by e-mail.

 

*) 60 minutes equals 4 identical quarter hour values, whereas 15 minutes result in different possible quarter hour values. Both 1MW and 1kW resolution requires 3 decimal places.
**) In the event of incidents in market coupling this deadline may be extended.

 

Intraday capacities

Nomination of schedules that use intraday capacities must also be given separately from the other schedule time series and is subject to individual rules.

The acceptance of capacity on congested borders requires the reservation of the capacity right (Capacity Agreement Identification) on the respective capacity platform. Please refer to page Intraday Capacity Allocation for more detailed information.

Please note: on the Switzerland-Austria border, APG must be notified by telephone of each intraday change or addition to cross-border schedules.

An intraday change only increases the version of the schedule time series that was changed or added. The version number (Senders Time Series Version) of schedule time series not affected by the intraday change should not be changed under any circumstances. Intraday changes that do not comply with this condition will be totally rejected.

Nomination procedure

1:1 Nomination of schedules across control areas must be given between the balancing group of the same balancing group representative with an identical Energy Identification Code (EIC), i.e. the capacity right owner must personally nominate the schedule on both sides of the border to utilise their capacity right.
B:N The nomination of cross-border schedules can be carried out personally by the capacity right owner or by nomination agents named by the capacity right owner. They can name maximum one agent (B) on the export side and any required number of agents (N) on the import side. Agent B is always entered in the rights document (Programming Authorization), i.e. if an agent has been named, the capacity right owner cannot personally nominate the schedule on this side of the border. Details are specified in the corresponding auction rules.
N:B  Similar to B:N, but any required number of agents can be nominated on the export side and maximum one agent on the import side.
n:m The EIC of the balancing group must be identical to the EIC of the capacity right owner on at least one side of the border, i.e. direct cross-border business transactions can be carried out with any required trading partner. 
A:B Nomination of schedules by a specific agent (A, B) in the particular control area.

To prevent any inconsistencies, it is urgently recommended that nomination of schedules across control areas always be given using version 1:1 (mirror image balancing groups of the same representative). It has been shown that this can minimise errors during schedule nomination, thus guaranteeing very secure business transactions.

Netting out

All timeseries within a schedule message related to the same neighbouring control zone shall be considered as corresponding if the header-attributes „in party“, „out party“, „capacity agreement identification“ and „capacity contract type“ are identical.

All quantity values of these corresponding timeseries must be netted per position  - this means that only one timeseries value (import or export) may have a quantity higher than 0 MW per position.
