RTE provides you with the following data:

  • abacuses Kh et Kj
  • coefficient C,technology
  • coefficient CGP
  • interconnections contributions
  • reference extreme temperature
  • capacity of demand response based on tariffs
  • Equivalent historical PP2 days over the 2004 to 2016 period (prior to the first year of implementation of the capacity mechanism):

    > these equivalent historical PP2 days are made available for CEs with sufficient historical capacities and certified according to the normative method (10 years of history for wind power, for example).
    > from 2017 (first year of implementation of the capacity mechanism), the PP2 day history notified by RTE is provided on the PP1 and PP2 signals.

Final obligation 2017

For information purposes, RTE communicates on the level of final obligation 2017: 87,889 MW

Obligation estimations

The estimations are based on the reference trajectory and the consumption trajectories studied as part of the sensitivity analyses of the 2019 Generation Adequacy Report, i.e.:

  • Base case: stable consumption over the analysis period
  • Other trajectories corresponding to the sensitivity analyses of the Generation Adequacy Report established by applying average annual growth rates.

Specifically, the consumptions considered in the calculation of the reference power for France do not take into account any actions in place to manage peak energy consumption (including demand response). The reference power published by RTE therefore does not account for any potential actions suppliers have in place to manage peak energy consumption.

In addition, RTE has published the sum of the obligation pre-estimations transmitted by obligated parties for the 2020 year, in accordance with article 6.2 of the capacity mechanism terms and conditions:

This publication is accompanied by the list of obligated parties who have not transmitted their pre-estimation to RTE for the 2020 delivery year: List of obligated Parties without pre-estimation 2020.
