On 7 August  Baltic TSOs – Augstsprieguma tīkls, Elering and Litgrid – completed Public consultation regarding the Terms, Conditions and Methodologies on Cross-Zonal Capacity Calculation, Provision and Allocation within the Baltic States and with the 3rd Countries. The rules will apply for capacity calculation and allocation within Baltic countries and with third countries, subject to relevant approval of national regulatory authorities.
 
On 11 September Baltic TSOs submitted reviewed draft rules to Baltic countries’ 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.
 
The currently effective rules are reviewed due to the expected commencement of operation of two new Baltic interconnections in the beginnin of 2016 – NordBalt connecting Lithuania with Sweden and LitPol Link connecting Lithuania and Poland and due to exptected enetering into force the European Union Regulation establishing a Guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management.
