Successful go-live of the Core Flow-Based Market
Coupling project 08/06/2022


The project parties involved in the day-ahead Core Flow-Based Market Coupling
project (Core FB MC) are announcing the successful go-live of the project on
08/06/2022. The successful go-live of Core FB MC is the result of the close cooperation
between all involved NEMOs, TSOs and regulatory authorities.

Additionally, today as part of the Core FB MC project also market coupling is
implemented between Croatia and Hungary, marking another major achievement in
the completion of the European target model. Furthermore, also a completely new
interconnector and electricity border was implemented on the border of Slovenia and
Hungary, which is now already part of Core Flow-based allocation and will go-live
commercially at the beginning of July.

About the Day-Ahead Flow-Based Market Coupling project in the Core CCR
The Core Flow-Based Market Coupling (Core FB MC) project promotes the
development and implementation of a flow-based day-ahead market coupling across
the whole Core capacity calculation region (Core CCR) including the implementation
of the day ahead coupling of Croatian and Hungarian markets, in the framework of
CORE-FB the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC). The Core CCR consists of the bidding zone
borders between the following EU Member States’ bidding zones: Austria, Belgium,
Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxemburg, the
Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Market integration is core to the energy transition.
The energy transition towards a carbon-free electricity supply is a European challenge
that requires the use of the European electricity system to the full extent. Weatherdependent
supply and increasing demand response will lead to a different and more
intense grid use. The Core market integration process aims to create operational
preconditions to optimise the use of the system from a regional perspective and make
the single European market a reality.
