Nord Pool has today (Thursday 2 May) welcomed a statement from Ofgem, the government regulator for gas and electricity markets in Great Britain, concerning GB – Ireland market coupling and with it the opportunity to provide input to Ofgem’s consultation and to comment on the commitments being proposed.
We believe that Ofgem’s statement serves to emphasise the importance of establishing a level playing field between power exchanges if they are to deliver the full value of electricity market coupling both to market participants and to consumers.
We welcome the opportunity to participate fully in the GB - Ireland market coupling, which we have always recognised as being highly significant for increased social welfare and security of supply between Great Britain and the island of Ireland.
