Decision to grant the ESO a derogation under Article 6(14) from the requirements of Article 6(2) of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943 for Dynamic Containment

On the 23 September 2020, we received a request from the Electricity System Operator (ESO) for a derogation under Article 6(14) from the requirements of Article 6(2) of the Regulation (EU) 2019/943 (Electricity Regulation) for the new specific Frequency Containment Reserve (FCR) product Dynamic Containment (DC).

The ESO have requested the derogation from the requirements of Article 6(2) to allow the specific product, DC, to be launched with the price of balancing energy predetermined in the balancing capacity contract.

This letter sets out our decision to approve the derogation requests in accordance with Article 6(14) of the Electricity Regulation and also outlines the necessary next steps that must be taken.
