GC0097: Grid Code Processes Supporting TERRE

Modification status: Current

Last updated: 11 May 2018

The Code Administrator Consultation for this modification is OPEN until 5pm on Monday 4 June 2018. 

This is a workgroup to consider the appropriate technical requirements for Energy Storage technologies connecting to the Transmission system, and discuss any high level changes that may be necessary to the Grid Code. Project TERRE is a key implementation initiative for the European Electricity Balancing Guideline (EB GL), which aims to establish a pan-European market for Balancing Energy. The project is seeking to design and develop a central platform to facilitate the clost to real-time (<1 hour) exchange of Replacement Reserves (balancing energy products with a >15 min lead time) between Transmission System Operators(TSOs) in Europe. GC0097 will review to what extent existing Grid Code processes, primarily in the Balancing Code section (BC1-3), need to be changed or supplemented in order to facilitate TERRE participation in GB. It will also consieder the interation with the existing GB Balancing Mechanism process given their converging timescales.
