The content

The training helps attendees (with some prior knowledge of electricity markets) understand the new market arrangements as envisaged under the Day, Ahead, intraday and balancing Markets Rules, and the differences in terms of renewable market participation (and risks faced) when compared to the existing framework.

The training material is based on a holistic review of the Market Rules and the key legislation with respect to the FiP support mechanism (Law 4414/2016).  The review focuses on a qualitative assessment of the impact of the draft Market Rules and the respective support schemes on renewable generation in respect of:

  • participation of renewables in the Day Ahead and intraday markets (whether direct or indirect);
  • participation in the balancing market (whether direct or indirect);
  • settlement of imbalances; and
  • interactions with the support scheme.

Worked examples are developed that show the different flows of information (and respective obligations) and payments to help aid the description of the market and the impact on renewables generation.

Briefly, the training is structured as follows:

Day 1: Monday, 18 March 2019, 08:45 – 17:45

Overview, Forward markets, Day Ahead Market, Intraday Market, Dispatch and balancing, Imbalance settlement.

Within the first day there are presentations by representatives of GiZ and ADMIE.

Day 2: Wednesday, 20 March 2019, 08:30 –16:00

Aggregators, market participation under the FiP scheme, transitional arrangements, Worked examples for FiT projects, Worked examples for FiP projects (with direct participation), Worked examples on participation via RES aggregators, Corporate PPAs.
