An amendment is made to the Elspot regulations - Appendix 1 to the Rulebook for the physical markets at Nord Pool Spot.
Under section 3.9 – treating situations where a point of intersection between the purchase- and sales curve is not achieved – a new clause 3.9.5 is added. The clause will read as follows:
3.9.5 Activate separate purchase or sales offer from Energinet.dk due to lack of successful market coupling on the border between Denmark and Germany.
The current 3.9.5 will become 3.9.6.
The procedure has been approved by the Danish Energy Regulatory Authority. The amendment to the NPS rulebook has been accepted by the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate until a possible market coupling between the Nordic and Central Western European regions is in place or latest 1 January 2011.
This amendment will take effect from 25 November 2009 and the new Appendix 1 will be available on Nord Pool Spot’s website from that day. The rulebook and its appendices are available here.
