Since 2006, the European Regulators Group for Electricity and Gas (ERGEG) has launched initiatives to bring together National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), Transmission System Operators (TSOs), Power Exchanges (PXs) and other stakeholders to create a well-functioning Internal Energy Market (IEM). There is now a common vision for the completion of this IEM in electricity by 2014: electricity markets across Europe must share a set of common features and must be linked by efficient management of interconnection capacities.
The NRAs and the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) have published a Cross-regional Roadmap for the implementation of a single day-ahead European price coupling and the roadmap was approved by the Florence Forum in December 2011. The roadmap indicates the implementation of a European price coupling (EPC) in North Western Europe (NWE), consistent with a parallel/sequential process of further integration leading to the achievement of the EPC by end 2014. Other regions and countries may be coupled to NWE at the start of the NWE price coupling provided that this does not delay the start date of NWE price coupling. The NWE NRAs have also indicated that the borders to neighbouring markets that are currently considered in the Interim Tight Volume Coupling (ITVC) solution should continue to be coupled under NWE Price Coupling.
