Nordenergi letter on the inclusion of EPADs in the NC FCA
In a joint letter to the European Commission, Nordenergi and NAET call for more consideration for the needs of generators, distribution companies, retailers and the final customers in Network Code Forward Capacity Allocation (NC FCA). In its current version the NC FCA promotes only FTRs and PTRs. This does not take into account the aim of the underlying guideline, which is to promote hedging opportunities for the above-mentioned fundamental actors. Nordenergi urges that the NC FCA should be adapted to allow the NRAs to choose existing market structures, and allowing for the use of existing product specifications and trading platforms i.e. EPADs in the Nordics, as equal alternatives to other LTTRs.
