NEMOs and TSOs are safeguarding the Day-Ahead and Intraday market coupling


People and businesses face an unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting lives around the world.

The highest priority for NEMOs and TSOs is to safeguard the health of their staff while ensuring the continuity of all operations in the framework of Single Day Ahead Coupling (SDAC) and Single Intraday Coupling (SIDC).

In respect to the Day-Ahead and Intraday market coupling, a wider variety of measures has been taken to safeguard stable operations. These include physical separation in respective operational teams and enabling NEMOs to run the Day-Ahead and Intraday sessions remotely. Several SDAC and SIDC parties have put in place a production environment freeze. For details on these measures please contact the individual TSOs and NEMOs.

Although the COVID-19 outbreak situation changes from day to day, SDAC and SIDC expect no material impact on their ability to operate the relevant coupled Day-Ahead or Intraday markets under the current circumstances.
