From 1 July 2014 Energinet.dk will begin to allocate Physical Transmission Rights (PTRs) in monthly auctions on the interconnector between DK1 and DK2. The first auctions will be conducted in the middle of June by CASC for the allocation of monthly explicit capacity for July. Energinet.dk will offer 150 MW in monthly auctions in both directions on the interconnector in a 1-year pilot-project.
On 29 April 2014, the Danish regulator approved a 1-year pilot-project with PTRs on the interconnector between DK1 and DK2. The pilot-project will be evaluated after one year – for a decision on whether to continue the allocation of explicit capacity on the interconnector.
Currently Energinet.dk offers PTRs on the border between DK1 and Germany together with TenneT TSO GmbH and with 50 Hertz Transmission on the Kontek interconnector between DK2 and Germany. Auction rules currently applied on the Danish-German border will also be applied on the interconnector between DK1 and DK2.
The auction rules are available on www.casc.eu.
