Fingrid and Svenska kraftnät have made changes to the peak load capacity (PLC) market design during 2017. The new market design rules will come into operation from the winter 2017-2018. The activation price of PLC production in the power exchange will be changed to the level of price cap of the day-ahead market i.e. 3000€/MWh. The reason for the change is to reduce the market effect of PLC.
The total PLC production volume on the day-ahead market for the winter 2017-2018 is 1269 MW containing 562 MW in Sweden and 707 MW in Finland.
The Swedish PLC is available from the 16th of November 2017 – 15th of March 2018 and the Finnish PLC is available from the 1st of December 2017 – 28th of February 2018.
Activation of peak load capacity for power exchange in Finland and Sweden will be based on the activation rules published in Peak Load Capacity (“PLC”) in Sweden and Finland.
