29.09.2015
  • New features have been implemented on the PRISMA platform
  • Reminder: PRISMA will change the current auction calendar to the new ENTSOG calendar on the 1st of October

 

Leipzig. Starting on the 1st of October 2015, PRISMA platform will be fully compliant with the CAM Network Code regulations that will come into force on the 1st of November 2015.

The most important new functionalities are:

Introduction of “kWh/d”;

  • Besides “kWh/h” the platform will also support the flow unit “kWh/d”
  • The decision of the used flow unit will be with the TSOs
  • The usage of the flow unit will be connected to the network point and can be either “kWh/d” or “kWh/h”
  • TSO already using “kWh/h” will not change to “kWh/d” on short notice
  • Bundling and calculation between the different flow units will not be supported by the PRISMA platform

Within day (WID) auctions;

  • The uniform-price auction algorithm will be the same as for the Day-Ahead auctions
  • The auctions will be published and started at the same time (same behaviour as the Day-Ahead auctions)
  • Details about the auction timing can be found in the training presentation in the download section: https://corporate.prisma-capacity.eu/downloads/

While the CAM NC requires within day auctions from the 1st of November, some TSOs will start with the within day auctions before that date:

  • Premier Transmission Limited (PTL) will offer available capacity for the transportation periods of the 2nd of October on the 1st of October.
  • TAG GmbH will offer available capacity for the transportation periods of the 6th of October on the 5th of October.
  • Gas Connect Austria will offer available capacity for the transportation periods of the 14th of October on the 13th of October.
  • Fluxys Belgium and Gasunie Transport Services B.V. will start offering available capacity on the 28th of October with the transportation periods of 29th of October.
  • BBL Company will start offering available capacity on the 28th of October with the transportation periods of 29th of October.
  • Fluxys TENP and Fluxys Deutschland will start offering available capacity on the 31th of October with the transportation periods of the 1st of November.

 

Other functionalities that will be introduced starting on the 1st of October are listed below:

– Display of additional capacity
– Harmonization
– Changes to reverse auctions
– Improvement of error messages

PRISMA reminds that on the 1st of October, the current auction calendar will be changed to the new ENTSOG calendar. The main changes are concerning the scheduling of the interruptible long-term auctions, which currently start on the day after the closure of the firm auctions; with the new calendar, all interruptible auctions will start on fixed dates. Details can be found in the table below. The publication of the interruptible auctions will take place the day after the end of all firm auctions at a respective network point.
