Nord Pool, Europe’s leading power market, has today (Wednesday 10 February), confirmed its appointment as a Nominated Electricity Market Operator (NEMO) in Belgium.
The Belgium NEMO appointment marks the twelfth such designation and signifies Nord Pool’s ability to meet the new Network Guidelines on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM), which came into force on 14 August 2015.
Nord Pool earlier announced 11 NEMO appointments, covering Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Sweden.
The CACM code sets the rules for cross-border electricity trading in Europe. It covers cross-border capacity allocation in the day-ahead and intraday time frames, rules for congestion management and methods for calculating capacity across bidding zones. As a designated NEMO, under CACM, Nord Pool will have responsibility for a variety of roles with regards to market coupling.
