France-Belgium Interconnection : Conditions governing joint capacity allocation by ELIA and RTE.

Source: RTE 24/06/2002

ELIA and RTE publish the conditions for access to the France-Belgium interconnection applicable as of 1 July 2002.

After having published the proposed access conditions on 17 May 2002, ELIA and RTE are now publishing the conditions governing access to the France-Belgium interconnection for the allocation and utilisation of capacity as of 1 July 2002. As initially announced, these conditions are based on the following principles:

  • a joint method of determining the capacity to be allocated with the publication of the results;
  • the holder of the capacity and he who nominates are one and the same person, the access responsible in Belgium and the holder of a France-Belgium interconnection utilisation contract for
    exports in France;
  • joint monthly capacity allocation according to the method developed by ELIA;
  • joint daily capacity allocation according to the method developed by RTE;
  • application of the "use it or lose it" principle to the historical and monthly
    contracts, so as to make it possible to re-allocate unused capacity on a
    daily basis.

    The document entitled "Conditions for access to the France-Belgium interconnection applicable between 1 July 2002 and 31 December 2002" presents the processes implemented in greater detail. The contractual conditions are set out in an amended version of the ELIA Access Responsibility Contract and in the RTE document entitled "Mechanism for the allocation of export capacity on the France-Belgium interconnection."
