International Grid Control Cooperation (IGCC)

Source: RTE - DC 10/02/2016

On February 16th, RTE will join the IGCC initiative, with the first netting of imbalances.

It is a cooperation between TSOs which deals exclusively with Imbalance Netting for automatic Frequency Restoration Reserves (i.e. to avoid counter activation of aFRR in different Control Areas) under residual ATC constraints at the borders to provide operational security.

Its objectives are to lower the solicitation of aFRR, to strengthen the security of supply for each IGCC Member and to generate social welfare for the whole cooperation (Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Austria, Czech Republic and now France).
