Evaluation of the power situation in DK2 has indicated a need for initiatives supporting the capacity balance after 2016.
The Danish TSO is therefore considering to procure peak load reserves for a period after 2016 and until new interconnector capacity to neighboring areas or new production inside DK2 has been established. Currently, investigations and dialogue with relevant authorities are ongoing and no final decision has been taken.
A potential procurement of peak load reserves and the tender process will be conducted with special attention to socioeconomic benefits, minimization of influence on the markets, and compliance with Nordic and European legislation.
