Trial days for Market coupling CZ-SK-HU, 6.-16.8.2012

Show all

Dear Member,

The CZ SK HU Market Coupling project partners are pleased to announce that they are organizing member testing sessions. We hereby provide you with all the information needed to participate to this member testing session taking place on the 06th August 2012, 07th August 2012, 08th August 2012, 13th August 2012, 14th August 2012 and 16th August 2012.

This member testing period is intended to give you an end to end overview of the CZ SK HU Market Coupling processes, procedures and time intervals regarding the daily operation including, amongst others, gate closure times and publication of results. Procedures and time intervals applicable in case of CZ SK HU Market Coupling fallbacks will also be tested.

Please be aware that the member testing is not intended to reflect future pricing or volume levels in a CZ SK HU Market Coupling context. All prices and volumes published during the member testing as well as concluded contracts in the member test environment are completely fictional and cannot be used as a reference for exchanges price or volume analyses. Clearing and settlement processes will not be simulated during this test period, which will end with market results publication. Neither should the results of the member testing be nominated to your respective local TSO.

In order to provide sufficient liquidity and to avoid, as much as possible, the risk of erratic pricing levels, please be aware that your local exchange will submit fictitious orders.
