OPCOM raises to ANRE the excessive concentration in the balancing market


As the new European regulation of the electricity market also requires the modification of the rules in the balancing market, OPCOM transmitted ANRE that there is an excessive concentration and a dominant participant in the market, which is Hidroelectrica.

According to e-nergia.ro, the operator of the electricity market OPCOM sent to ANRE several comments regarding the changes requested by market actors in order to adapt an order, a draft for now, by which it will be decided how to implement the EU Regulation 943 on the functioning of the EU power market.

A public debate on these changes is scheduled today, on December 17th. One of the changes in the balancing market will impose a single price deficit and excess imbalances and the removal of the upper limit of the imbalance price; for now ANRE set this level at the average price on the day ahead market – DAM plus 450 lei/ MWh.
