Home View data published by RTE {{item}} {{item.label}} Parameters and market parties of the capacity mechanism {{vm.currentItem}}

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 new obligation estimations are established on the basis of 4 consumption trajectories with a range going from a lasting crisis scenario to that of a return to the pre-crisis situation.

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 and 2021 years, in accordance with article 6.2 of the capacity mechanism terms and conditions:

For obligated parties who have not provided an obligation pre-estimation for the year 2020 or 2021, the value received in October 2019 for the year 2020 is used to establish the sum of the adjusted obligation pre-estimations. For parties who have not provided any pre-estimate for the year 2020 or 2021, no correction is applied. RTE assesses the missing obligation at less than 100 MW (ie less than 0.1% of the obligation).

This publication is accompanied by the list of obligated parties who have not transmitted their pre-estimation to RTE:
