Procured reserves

In order to ensure a balance between supply and demand, RTE procure the reserves availability (power) with market players.

  1. Each generator must participate in the adjustments to the Frequency Containment Reserve and Automated Frequency Restoration Reserve according to the conditions laid down in the ancillary service rules. The Automatic Reserve Requirements issued by RTE give place to a fixed remuneration from RTE in accordance with Article 2.10.2.
  2. Contracting of the so called tertiary reserve is made following a tender each year with the balancing market players. Contracting guarantees a fixed annual volume of Manual Frequency Restoration Reserve adjustable in 13 mns (1,000 MW) and Replacement Reserve adjustable in 30 mns (500 MW) over a period running from 1 April to 31 March. In return for their contractual commitment to make capacity available on the balancing mechanism, the balancing players receive an annual bonus based on the offered volume and the activation time. The price displayed per half-hour corresponds to the average half-hour price for the month in question and paid to the contracting parties.
