on the Northern Italian borders
Publication date: 30th of May 2022
The NEMOs (Nominated Electricity Market Operators) and TSOs (Transmission System
Operators) of the Italian Borders Working Table (IBWT) Market Coupling Project are pleased to
announce that the go-live of the IBWT Multi NEMO Arrangement (MNA) implementation will take
place on June the 8th 2022 (trading for delivery on 9th of June).
This follows the successful completion of technical readiness and marks another milestone in the
completion of the EU Market Coupling as set out in the Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 of 24 July
2015, establishing a guideline on Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management (“CACM
Regulation”). The IBWT MNA will go live simultaneously with the Core Flow-Based Day-Ahead
Market Coupling project.
With the IBWT MNA implementation, the electricity flows at the northern Italian borders, more
specifically between Italy and Austria and Italy and France, will be accessible in Single Day-
Ahead Coupling, in Austria and France, by more than one Nominated Electricity Market Operator
(NEMO) per bidding zone.
Following the IBWT MNA go-live, the SDAC operations on Austrian-Italian and French-Italian
borders will be jointly operated by all the NEMOs designated in the adjacent bidding zones of
Austria and France, pursuant to Art. 45 of CACM Regulation.
