The launch of the Day Ahead Flow Based project is targeted for 20 April 2022 (trading for delivery on 21 April). It will mark the transition to a single coupled auction for the day-ahead market across the Core region, based on the flow-based methodology. This allows for a regional optimization of the capacity allocation in the day ahead timeframe. Currently the project is in the Joint Integration Testing phase. The formal go-live decision with the will be taken several weeks in advance.

Communication channels

Market participants who would like to follow closer the project development are invited to join the Core Consultative Group (CCG) by sending an email to CoreCG@magnus.nl. The participants of the Core Consultative Group will receive regular information, and invitations to teleconferences and meetings.
Next to the CCG a Question & Answer Forum for the Core FB MC project is currently in use. The Forum is available under the Core FB MC section on the JAO website, i.e. www.jao.eu. Project parties invite all market participants to use this Forum for their queries.

About the Day-Ahead Flow-Based Market Coupling project in the Core CCR

The Core Flow-Based Market Coupling (Core FB MC) project promotes the development and implementation of a flow-based day-ahead market coupling across the whole Core capacity calculation region (Core CCR) in the framework of the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC). The Core CCR consists of the bidding zone borders between the following EU Member States’ bidding zones: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Market integration is core to the energy transition

The energy transition towards a carbon free electricity supply is a European challenge that requires the use of the European electricity system to the full extend. Weather-dependent supply and increasing demand response will lead to a different and more intense use of the grid. The Core market integration project is aiming to create operational preconditions to optimise the use of the system from a regional perspective and make the single European market a reality.
