Incremental capacity project: Czech-Polish connection
7 July 2021
Information on the completion of the procedure initiated in 2019 for incremental capacity for the border between Poland and the Czech Republic (INCREMENTAL 2019-2021)
The transmission system operators of Poland (GAZ-SYSTEM) and the Czech Republic (NET4GAS) inform, that in the annual auction for incremental capacity for the border between market areas of Poland and the Czech Republic, which took place on 5 July 2021, according to the Regulation (EU) 2017/459 (NC CAM) and on the basis of approval of the incremental capacity project made by decisions of the respective national regulatory authorities (decision of the President of the Polish Energy Regulatory Office No. DRR.WRG.748.9.2020.ABu1 on 29 April 2021 for Poland and decision of the Czech Energy Regulatory Office 09654-15/2020-ERU on 5 May 2021 for the Czech Republic), both TSOs offered the common offer level of incremental capacity for bundled capacity at IP Cieszyn/Český Těšín.
No amount of incremental capacity was booked by any market participant in the abovementioned annual auction and therefore the economic test ended with a negative result on both sides of the Polish-Czech border.
According to Art. 22(3) of CAM NC in case no offer level results in a positive outcome of the economic test, the specific incremental capacity process shall be terminated.
