SE4-PL-LT market coupling arrangements update by activation of Polish optimization area

In order to benefit the markets from increase in utilisation of the available infrastructure of SwePol Link (HVDC link between Poland and Swedish SE4 bidding area) and LitPol Link (HVDC link between Poland and Lithuanian bidding area) Polish, Swedish and Lithuanian TSOs in coordination with respective power exchanges plan to implement Polish, Swedish and Lithuanian market coupling arrangements update by activation of Polish optimization area (PLA) between Poland and both SE4 and LT bidding areas. The PL-PLA (capacities between Polish power system and Polish optimisation area) will represent “Capacity Allocation Constraints” as a result of Polish power system constraints, while capacities between PLA-SE4 and PLA-LT will represent available cross-border capacities.
 
Markets participants are welcome to provide feedback on planned SE4-PL-LT market coupling arrangements update to the corresponding TSOs by May 1st, 2017. In case no significant objections are raised by market participants, preventing from implementing planned SE4-PL-LT market coupling arrangements update, TSOs shall continue with planned implementations and would launch SE4-PL-LT market coupling arrangements update (activation of Polish optimization area PLA) starting July 1st, 2017.
