Nord Pool Spot has received the following information from Svenska Kraftnät:
In order to comply with the concerns expressed by the Commission in Case No 39351 Swedish Interconnectors, Svenska Kraftnät has offered commitments to the European Commission in accordance with Article 9 of Council Regulation No 1/2003. During the first quarter 2010 the Commission is expected to adopt a decision making these commitments binding. As a result of such a decision Svenska Kraftnät will subdivide the Swedish transmission system into four bidding zones defined by the three cross-sections (cut 1, cut 2 and cut 4) where congestion occurs. For details see attached map and table. Svenska Kraftnät will operate the system on this basis from the date 2011 set out in the decision adopted by the Commission.
