Redispatching system to be fully launched in early June

RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, plans to offer no further extension to an ongoing trial run distinguishing between balancing energy and redispatching-related energy in the balancing market, and is set to approve a full launch of the system for early June, when the latest dry-run extension expires.

The trial stage began on December 1 and has been extended twice, the latest ending May 31. The trial run is not producing financial results but is limited to flagging quantities activated as a result of load changes.

Officials have noted that prospective changes promised by the redispatching system’s introduction, including in balancing market prices, should not be seen as a foregone conclusion.
