Capacity Calculation Methodology

Nordic Capacity Calculation Methodology Project

The Nordic Capacity Calculation Methodology (CCM) project is responsible for the methodology development of the Nordic Capacity Calculation Methodologies for the Long-Term (LT), Day-Ahead(DA), and Intraday (ID) timeframes.

The methodologies are to be developed in line with the requirements from the Forward Capacity Allocation Guideline (FCA GL) and Capacity Allocation and Congestion Management Guideline (CACM GL), and to be approved by the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs). If NRAs are not able to approve the methodology proposed by the TSOs, they have to refer the methodology to the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER). ACER will then amend, and decide on, the methodology.
