New RSC to be established in Thessaloniki


As reported by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), significant progress is being made on pan-European coverage with regional security coordinators (RSCs). The transmission system operators (TSOs) of the South-East Europe and Greece-Italy Capacity Calculation Regions (CCRs), namely ESO-EAD (Bulgaria), IPTO (Greece), Terna (Italy) and TSCNET shareholder Transelectrica, the TSO from Romania, have agreed to establish a new RSC in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki.

The new company will provide all regional RSC services for both CCRs according to the requirements of the EU guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management (CACM). In line with the experience gained in other CCRs, the RSC in Thessaloniki will promote regional TSO cooperation and strengthen system and market operations. The further development of the plans will be reported in the course of 2020.
