IGCC welcomes RTE


The members of the International Grid Control Cooperation (IGCC), the transmission system operators (TSOs) from Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, issued an information on the integration of the French TSO, RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Electricité), into their organisation. The initiative for optimised control energy utilisation was launched in 2011 and performs an automatic netting of active power imbalances across control area borders. Nine TSC member TSOs (50Hertz, Amprion, APG, ČEPS, Energinet.dk, swissgrid, TenneT Germany, TenneT Netherlands, and TransnetBW) are IGCC members.

Extended power exchange


The Dutch-German transmission system operator and TSC member TenneT concentrates its interests in the APX power exchange (70.8%) and EPEX SPOT (9% via HGRT holding) into EPEX SPOT to create a power exchange for the entire Central Western Europe (CWE) region and the United Kingdom. This agreement was reached between the shareholders of both exchanges (next to TenneT, the Belgian TSO Elia, and the French TSO RTE).
