All NEMOs publish CACM Annual Report 2020 on intraday and day-ahead coupling

This third CACM Annual Report prepared by the Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) in cooperation with Transmission System Operators (TSOs) monitors the implementation of the Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management Regulation (CACM Regulation) and the associated Algorithm methodology. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the single day-ahead coupling (SDAC) and single intraday coupling (SIDC) operations in 2020 and gives a broad outline of the current and future performance of market coupling algorithms and the R&D activities undertaken.

The energy transition and the COVID-19 pandemic are triggering unprecedented transformations and challenges for the power sector. This twin challenge adds to a very fast changing energy landscape characterised by deepening EU integration, a growing penetration of renewable energy and new regulatory requirements.

Despite the difficulties faced by all sectors of the economy last year, NEMOs succeeded in rapidly adapting to the evolving environment and ensuring the stable and safe operation and performance of their functions. Since April 2020, soon after the first wave of the pandemic swept across Europe, NEMOs adopted a wide variety of measures to safeguard continuity of all operations both in the context of Single Day Ahead Coupling (SDAC) and Single Intraday Coupling (SIDC ) while ensuring a safe environment for their staff.’ says Rafael Gómez-Elvira González, Chairman of the All NEMO Committee.

The CACM Annual Report 2020 summarises the work achieved by NEMOs and TSOs in the day-ahead and intraday coupling projects to ensure successful operation of market coupling solutions. A regular and transparent assessment of their operations and performance is the key to support the ultimate goal of all projects – an effective integrated EU energy market.

The NEMO Committee organises a live webinar on the CACM Annual Report 2020 in September. The exact date and the agenda will be published soon.

About all NEMO Committee:
The All NEMO Committee facilitates the cooperation among NEMOs for all common European tasks necessary for the efficient and secure design, implementation and operation of single day-ahead and intraday coupling. The All NEMO Committee is formed by the appointed representatives of each NEMO.
