First Draft Balancing Rules Walkthrough

On 5 July 2011 the IMO held a workshop with RDIWG members to walk through the intent of a draft proposed Balancing Market Rules. The IMO has updated the rules following initial feedback from this workshop as they stand at 6 July 2011. These are provided below.  Further revisions can be expected prior to and following the second workshop on 19 July 2011.

Also provided below is the latest version of the “Balancing 12 box diagram” upon which the rules have been drafted.

New Balancing and Load Following Ancillary Service Market Information

Here is material explaining the new proposed Balancing and Load Following Ancillary Service market arrangements. The first document outlines the arrangements in detail, the second is a walk through presentation of the new arrangements and the third document sets out how the trials of the new arrangements are to operate from December 2011. The fourth document is a spreadsheet that simulates a simplified version of the proposed balancing market and has been provided as a tool for Market Participants to begin to familiarise themselves with potential outcomes of the proposed design.
