Consultation of the revised prequalification conditions according to SO GL

On 14 September 2017, Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1485 of 2 August 2017 laying down a Guideline for Transmission System Operations (hereinafter "SO GL") entered into force. The TSOs have implemented the requirements of this Regulation in concrete prequalification conditions ("PQ conditions") for the control reserve types FCR, aFRR and mFRR.

Due to the scale and complexity of the issue, the TSOs have decided to divide the consultation (without a corresponding legal commitment) on the revised PQ conditions into two phases. In the first phase, the TSOs first informed market participants and other interested parties of the contents of the revised PQ conditions and received comments and proposed amendments as part of a "pre-consultation" in January / February 2018. This first phase was expressly not intended to be a formal consultation, but rather to allow all participants to first present and discuss the content in a more informal setting.

Following this "pre-consultation", the TSOs held a formal consultation in Phase 2 in April / May 2018. As part of this consultation, in addition to the revised PQ conditions, i.a. the modalities for BSP under Article 18 (5) of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 of 23 November 2017 laying down a system balancing regime in the electricity supply system ("EB GL") have been consulted.

The results of the consultation (consultation notes and comments by the TSOs) are published alongside; the revised PQ conditions can be found under www.regelleistung.net/ext/download/PQ_Bedingung_Konsultation_2018_01.

The TSOs are grateful for the active participation in both phases of the consultation and look forward to continuing the exchange with the BSP.
