[Italy North CCR] 2021Q3 CC Report Publication

by Italy North TSOs

Dear Italy North Market Participants,

Italy North TSOs are happy to announce the publication of the 2021Q3 capacity calculation report. This report includes unconstrained capacities and validated capacities for the period 01/06/2021 – 30/09/2021. Unlike previous quarterly CC reports, this report does not include data for vertical load, net position, production, long term nominations, limiting CNEC and monitored CNEC, because this data can now be accessed via the Publication Tool (jao.eu).

Kind regards,

Italy North TSOs
