Integration of additional balancing power in the scarcity component ("Knappheitskomponente") of reBAP

BNetzA decided to suspend the so called "Freisetzung am Regelarbeitsmarkt" on 31.10.2022 with their decision BK6-22-162. The German TSOs will apply this from delivery day 08.12.2022 on.

The TSOs will furthermore integrate this additional volumes in the so called "scarcity component" and the curve of the "scarcity component" will be shifted accordingly. This will also be applied from 08.12.2022 on.

The implementation has to be realized in two steps by the TSOs:
- First, the additional volumes will be taken into account for the calculation of the "scarcity component" from 08.12.2022 on
- The integration of the additional volumes in the publication processes "NRV-Saldo-Ampel"
and "AEP-Schätzer" will be realized at a later point in time
