Decision on Dynamic Containment in relation to the Terms and Conditions related to Balancing

On 24 September 2020, we  received a proposal from the Electricity System Operator (ESO) to make amendments to the national terms and conditions related to balancing (T&C) required by Article 18 of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 establishing a guideline on electricity balancing (the EBGL Regulation). This proposal relates to the inclusion of Dynamic Containment (DC) into the T&C.

DC is a service that will be procured by the ESO based on the DC Service Terms, DC General Terms and Conditions, and DC Participation Guidance Document. Therefore, the ESO request is for confirmation that the specific provisions within the DC Service Terms, DC General Terms and Conditions, and DC Participation Guidance Document form part of the T&C required by Article 18 of the EGBL Regulation.

This letter sets out our decision to confirm that the DC Service Terms, DC General Terms and Conditions, and DC Participation Guidance Document, as mapped by the ESO, form part of the T&C pursuant to Article 18 of the EBGL Regulation.
