Process Description for MBIs and Capacity Buy-back

procedure for additional capacity in the single German market area – second consultation: joint concept from transmission system operators for an overbooking and buy-back scheme, the ruling chamber suggests that in order to improve understanding of the functioning and effectiveness of the market-based instruments and the capacity buy-back scheme and for reasons of transparency and acceptance, the concept should include a more comprehensive process description and more detailed information about the product characteristics. As announced in the statement of the transmission system operators (TSOs) of 11 November 2019, the TSOs are pleased to respond to this suggestion.

As part of the procedure „KAP+“ (Ref.: BK7-19-037) for additional capacity in the single German market area the Federal Network Agency’s BK 7 suggested the formulation of further information regarding the concept submitted by the TSOs. The now published “Process Description for MBIs and Capacity Buy-back” contains explanations concerning the functioning and effectiveness of the market-based instruments and the capacity buy-back scheme and a more comprehensive process description and more detailed information about the product characteristics.
