Flow-Based Courses

FB1 Refresh your knowledge about TSOs and ATC

TSO’ s role: Roles of TSOs / Different timeframes to determine cross-border capacities (yearly, monthly auctions …) / Timing of the cross-border capacity calculation in the day-ahead auction process

ATC: How are ATCs calculated? Which results, when and who for?/ Benefits of ATC market coupling / Next step: Flow-Based. Why? Flow-Based benefits compared to ATC Capacity Calculation

How will they be in FB? Which outputs were/are available (Margins, Ptdfs, critical branches …)

Expected FB market coupling impacts: Convergence/spreads/welfare

Impacts on trading: Understand the specificities of market price formation under flow-based constraints: Thor¬ough explanation of the plain and intuitive solutions / How to use the utility tool?

Courses on the specificities of the power market

CAPA Capacity Mechanism How is this mechanism working? What obligations apply to suppliers? On what basis are the capacity credits allocated to the various generation units? How is demand side management taken into account? 500.00 € 2,000.00 € 3,200.00 € 5,000.00 €
PO-C Power consumption Understanding what lies beneath power consumption. Daily, weekly or seasonal patterns, impacts of weather, tariff structures, major media events? In the medium term, how new use of electricity is changing the consumption pattern? Potential impact of electric vehicles, of energy efficiency policies 500.00 € 2,000.00 € 3,200.00 € 5,000.00 €
PO-G Power Generation What are the means of electricity generation? What are their economic fundamentals and main technical characteristics? Their role in the satisfaction of supply demand balance? Why different generation units with various economic characteristics can be profitable and coexist in the electrical system? How are these means prioritized to generate electricity? How works the arbitrage between primary energy costs, emission permits cost and electricity prices? 500.00 € 2,000.00 € 3,200.00 € 5,000.00 €
BM Balance responsible parties and balancing market This module describes how energy accounts are made in France to ensure that the electricity market participants balance their electricity purchases and sales, how production adjustments are made in real time to compensate for differences between generation and consumption, how works the cash settlements for imbalances... This module describes the basics mechanisms that rule exchange of electricity in France, supply demand adjustment in real time, and financial risk of balance responsible parties. 500.00 € 2,000.00 € 3,200.00 € 5,000.00 €
