As communicated in Exchange Information No. 113/2009 (22 December 2009) Svenska Kraftnät has offered commitments to the European Commission in relation to the Commission's case no 39351 Swedish interconnectors. A result of these commitments is that Svenska Kraftnät will subdivide Sweden into bidding areas.
The process of completing these commitments has been prolonged, e.g. following a market test on the commitments. As a result of this the proposed date for subdivision of Sweden in bidding areas has been postponed. The new date suggested by Svenska Kraftnät in the commitments is 1 November 2011. This is however not binding until a formal decision has been adopted by the Commission.
