The CRE has validated the request for renewal of RTE’s exemption for the calculation of the interconnection capacity of the SWE region for 2021.
The CRE has validated the request for renewal of RTE’s exemption for the calculation of the interconnection capacity of the SWE region (South West Europe) for 2021 as part of the Clean Energy Package. This exemption concerns the implementation of the minimum threshold of 70% of the capacity of network elements offered for cross-border trade.
The NIB (North Italian Borders) and CORE regions (specifically covering the perimeter of the historical region of Central Western Europe) will no longer be subject to exemption, given the levels of interconnection capacity for cross-border trade in these two regions.
In the South-West Europe region, the exemption has been renewed for one year in order to develop the experience of coordinating capacity calculation and to benefit from the contribution of tools for verification and mobilisation of costly measures.
In the first SWE derogation, RTE had undertaken to ensure the level of 70% for 70% of the time. For this new exemption, RTE has committed to ensuring the level of 70% for 80% of the time for the region. The level of commitment is therefore above 2020.
This exemption has been subject to discussions between RTE and the CRE and consultation with all of the regulators in the region concerned, with no comments or objections being raised.
The CRE thus approved this request during its deliberation of 26 November 2020.
