ENTSO-E, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, has published its Annual Report on Regional Coordination Assessment. This fulfils the obligations under Article 17 of Regulation (EU) 2017 / 1485. The report was prepared by the ENTSO-E Article 17 Project Group using a jointly developed template. It contains the key performance indicators (KPIs) for the services provided by the regional security coordinators (RSCs) and is in turn based on the reports of the European RSCs.
The KPIs were collected using the common pan-European tools and the individual templates of the RSCs. In 2020, the pan-European Outage Planning Coordination (OPC) and Short-Term Adequacy (STA) services were operational according to the methodology approved by the regulators. This enabled detailed KPIs. The regional service OPI (Operation Planning Incompatibility) was partially operational at some RSCs, such as TSCNET Services, so that detailed KPIs were also available. The Coordinated Security Analysis (CSA) and Common Grid Model (CGM) services have only been implemented to varying degrees so far.
The next major step foreseen is the launch of the pan-European Common Grid Model service planned for 2021. The conclusion of the report: Overall, the assessment of regional coordination shows well-established RSCs with high-quality services and good cooperation on cross-regional issues.
