As stated in press release No. 10/2007 dated 24 April this year, the project “Market Coupling between Denmark and Germany” is now in the implementation phase. Please also refer to press release No.16/2006 of 2 November 2006.
Both press releases were joint statements from the five project initiators: The transmission system operators Vattenfall Europe Transmission, E.ON Netz, and Energinet.dk, and the two power exchanges EEX and Nord Pool Spot.
In a co-operative spirit, the five project initiators have made every necessary effort to accelerate the implementation. However, in spite of these efforts, the parties have acknowledged, that it will not be possible to launch the market coupling during 2007.
The five parties will return with more information, when it is possible to fix a launch date. Detailed information will be given at an information seminar that the parties organize to be held in Hamburg on 13 November.
