Baltic Rules for the calculation and allocation of cross-border capacities approved by all Baltic Regulators and become effective from 1 January 2016

All National Regulatory Authorities of Baltic countries have assessed and approved the rules for the calculation and allocation of cross-border capacities within Baltic countries and with the third countries. “Terms, Conditions and Methodologies on Cross-Zonal Capacity Calculation, Provision and Allocation within the Baltic States and with the 3rd Countries” will apply from 1 January, 2016.
 
The Rules were developed by the Baltic transmission system operators (TSOs) Litgrid, Augstsprieguma tīkls and Elering.
 
During 2015 the common TSOs’ working group has developed the Rules and carried out public consultation. On 4 September Litgrid, Augstsprieguma tīkls and Elering jointly submitted the draft rules for the review and final approval to the National Regulatory Authorities in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. 
 
On December 10, 2015 the last National Regulatory Authority decision was made and the Rules are considered effective as of 1 January, 2016.
 
The Rules can be found on each Baltic TSOs website.
