Polish Multi-NEMO day-ahead market coupling plan go-live in January 2021

  • Rigorous testing phase continues
  • Important step towards further European Energy Market integration

19 November 2020 – The Polish Multi-NEMO day-ahead market coupling project partners plan to launch the day-ahead Multi-NEMO Arrangements (MNA) in Poland in January 2021, subject to successful completion of testing, final technical readiness and regulatory approval.

This will bring the implementation phase of the Polish Multi-NEMO market coupling project into its final stage.

Poland will become the third major geographical zone in Europe, after Central-Western Europe in 2019 and the Nordic region in 2020, to implement the day-ahead MNA framework, in compliance with the EU guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (CACM). CACM’s objective is fostering competition among Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) in the European energy markets, supporting the creation of a fully integrated Internal Energy Market.

This project aims to make the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC) accessible to more than one NEMO in Poland, while maintaining the general market coupling principles of capacity calculation and allocation.

All stakeholders will be informed regularly about progress in this final stage.

Polish Multi-NEMO day-ahead market coupling project participants include the Polish Transmission System Operator PSE, and the three designated NEMOs: EPEX SPOT, Nord Pool and TGE.
