Nord Pool has received the following information:
The total PLC production volume on the day-ahead market for the winter 2020-2021 is 1173 MW containing 562 MW in Sweden and 611 MW in Finland.
The Swedish PLC is available from the 16th of November 2021 – 15th of March 2022 and the Finnish PLC is available from the 1st of December 2021 – 28th of February 2022.
The activation price of PLC production in the power exchange will be the level of price cap of the day-ahead market.
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.
Due to national implementation of the European Clean Energy -package (CEP) in Finland, the national peak load capacity (PLC) law is being updated. Among others the CEP requires that PLC power plants should not be activated on day-ahead market anymore in the future. Thus, this will create changes in the way of activating PLC power plants in Finland. More information will be published as the implementation work proceeds.
