Nord Pool Spot has received the following information from Svenska Kraftnät:
Svenska Kraftnät has recieved the decision from the European Commission rendering the commitments offered by Svenska Kraftnät binding. As a consequence Svenska Kraftnät is now allocating trading capacity as described for the interim period in the commitment (ie. from now until the subdivision of the Swedish electricity market).
During the interim period Svenska Kraftnät commits to reduce the need to restrict trading capactiy on interconnectors available to the market, with the aim to achieve the same optimal operating scenario in the region, which will exist with Swedish bidding zones. This will be achieved by utilizing regulating resources suitable for counter trade to alleviate congestions in the Swedish transmission system.
A full description of the procedure can be found in the commitment document.
