SDAC milestone: Bulgarian and Romanian border is connected to the single day-ahead coupling


As of 27 October, with the inclusion of the Bulgarian-Romanian border, a geographical loop has been closed and the Southeast Europe (SEE) region is now fully integrated in the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC).

This marks yet another major milestone in the process of integrating the European day-ahead power markets.

On 27 October with first delivery day on 28 October, for the first time, day-ahead cross-zonal capacity between Romania and Bulgaria has been implicitly allocated via the Euphemia algorithm.

This successful coupling is the result of close collaboration between the Bulgarian and Romanian parties NEMOs and TSOs, namely IBEX, OPCOM, ESO and Transelectrica, together with the respective NRAs.
