Public consultations on the draft cross-border capacity rules

Information about the results of the public consultations on the draft "Terms, Conditions and Methodologies on Cross-Zonal Capacity Calculation, Provision and Allocation within the Baltic States and with the 3rd Countries” 
On July 10 Baltic transmission system operators (TSOs) Elering, Augstsprieguma tīkls (AST) and LITGRID announced invitation to the public consultation on Terms, Conditions and Methodologies on Cross-Zonal Capacity Calculation, Provision and Allocation within the Baltic States and with the 3rd Countries (hereinafter – Baltic Rules). All Baltic market participants have been invited to participate in the announced public consultations through direct mailing and publication of the invitation on home pages of Baltic TSOs. 
 
Public consultations lasted from July 10 until August 7. Market participants were asked to submit in written their comments to the Baltic Rules. Baltic TSOs received 16 comments and question from the public consultations. Following the public consultation on the main body of the Baltic Rules, a document (Appendix1) was prepared and approved by all TSOs summarising the comments from the public consultation. The document explains in details why the proposed changes were or were not incorporated into the final version of the Baltic Rules document. 
 
With this information Baltic TSOs publish a consolidated version of the reviewed Baltic Rules (Appendix 2) after the public consultations for information purposes only. This document does not in any way represent an official and final consolidation of the Baltic Rules. The final document is subject to the outcome of the regulatory process applicable in each relevant jurisdiction of Baltic countries.
 
To take the next step towards serving the market participants’ needs on September 11th Elering, AST and Litgrid jointly submitted reviewed draft Baltic Rules to Baltic States’ National Regulatory Authorities (Estonian Competition Authority, Public Utilities Commission of Latvia, National Commission for Energy Control and Prices of the Republic of Lithuania, hereinafter – Baltic NRAs) and asked for their review and approval of the submitted Baltic Rules.
 
Along the Baltic Rules Baltic TSOs are signing also an Agreement, which stipulates the principles through which the Baltic Rules shall become effective.  The Agreement foresees that the Baltic Rules shall be applicable from the 1st of January 2016, provided that the Baltic Rules are approved by all the respective National Regulatory Authorities of Baltic states.
