We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).
Reserve power plants
In accordance with the provisions of the German regulation on reserve power plants (abbr. Reservekraftwerksverordnung - ResKV, s.4) Transmission System Operators are obliged to publish a call for interest when the regulatory authority (Bundesnetzagentur) has identified an additional requirement of generation capacity for the network reserve (ResKV, s.3).
Current calls for interest
In accordance with the provisions of the German regulation on reserve power plants (abbr. Netzreserveverordnung - NetzResVKV) dated 27th June 2013, the German regulatory authority Bundesnetzagentur has examined the requirement for additional reserve power for the network reserve as calculated by the transmission system operators for the winter periods 2018/2019 and 2020/2021, and has published the associated report in accordance with § 3 para 1 NetzResV.
According to the report by Bundesnetzagentur from April 27th 2018 there is no direct requirement for additional generation capacity for the network reserve. Thus, currently there is no requirement for the transmission system operators to launch a call for expressions of interest for the examined winter periods.
