  • Progress towards harmonisation between regions

  •  Mini-Fora : natural vehicle to create momentum for levelling up transparency standards

  • 4 major German generators started to publish generation data via EEX-website based on EURELECTRIC proposal

    • Installed capacity

    • Daily available capacity

    • Net electricity generation (ex post)

  • Other German generators are following

  • Discussion of publication of further data ongoing

  • North Western European Market Parties Platform active in the pentalateral talks and representing EURELECTRIC in the Mini Fora

  • Proposes implementation of EURELECTRIC Paper in a two phase approach:

    • Creating a level playing field by publication of generation data according to the EEX definitions in all 5 countries by Q4 2006

    • Implementation of full EURELECTRIC proposal on generation data by Q2 2007 at the latest

  • Converging views on the overarching principles

  • More work needed on the details & definitions

  • Price area: relevant aggregation area

  • Ex ante generation schedule: little added value, conflicts with Competition Law to be explored
