Forecast and effective availability

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



Medium term availability forecast at the weekly peak time : W+2 to W+13

Download the data

NR : not received. Data from at least one generator have not been received by RTE.
The following rule is implemented when on week W, RTE does not receive data from one generator for one generation technology : the latest data received from the generator (usually W-1) are aggregated with data supplied by other generators on week W to compute the availability values for weeks W+2 to W+12. RTE does not publish data for the week W+13 for this technology.

Data per generating units

For the short and medium term, the detail per generating unit of availability forecasts is displayed for each generating unit larger than 100 MW. Click on the link to access detailed data per generating unit.

Origin of data

Availability forecasts are compiled by generators. RTE publishes two informations : aggregated availability forecast per type of generation technology and detailed availability forecasts per generating unit.

Published availability forecasts only take into account outages that are known for certain ; the risk of unplanned outage is not considered in these data.

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