With the implementation of market coupling on CWE, the PXs Gate Closure Time (GCT) has been postponed from 11 am (CET)  to 12 am (CET).
RTE and the french power generators (through the Union Française de l’Electricité) have taken a certain number of commitments that will be fulfilled : most of the data related to Power generation in France will be released at 11am (CET) , namely one hour before GCT

NR : not received. Data from at least one generator have not been received by RTE.
The following rule is implemented when on day D, RTE does not receive data from generator G for one generation technology.

Origin of data

Effective availability data are compiled by generators and aggregated by RTE for each type of generation technology, prior to publication.

Effective availability data for day D published on day D+1 is made of the forcast availability evaluated on D-1, corrected with total unplanned outages recorded on day D.

The published data represent the effective net available power : the power consumed for the functioning needs of generating units (consumption of auxiliary transformer) is not estimated.
