Call for expressions of interest in accordance with § 4 para 2 of the German Regulation on Reserve Power Plants (ResKV) for the winter period 2015/ 2016 (489 MW to 1388 MW)

In accordance with the provisions of the German regulation on reserve power plants (abbr. Reservekraftwerksverordnung – ResKV) dated 27th June 2013, the German regulatory authority Bundesnetzagentur has examined the requirement for additional reserve power for the network reserve as calculated by the transmission system operators for the winter period 2015/ 2016, and has published the associated report in accordance with § 3 para 1 ResKV.
The report by Bundesnetzagentur from 4th May 2015 identifies a direct additional requirement for a total of 489 MW to 1388 MW generation capacity for the network reserve. To cover the required generation capacity, the transmission system operators launch a call for expressions of interest in accordance with § 4 ResKV.

We hereby invite interested operators of electricity generation or storage facilities (“plant”) to submit an expression of interest in accordance with § 4 para 2 ResKV to have their plant included in the network reserve from 1st October 2015. To submit expressions of interest, interested operators are required to complete the documents below supplied for this purpose and to return them to the responsible transmission system operator, both electronically and in printed form: 

Details of the specific prerequisites and requirements for the plants and/or plant operators, including the geographical location of the demand and the technical parameters involved, are included in the documents provided.

The deadline for submissions of expressions of interest to have plants included in the network reserve from 1st October 2016 is 15th May 2015. The stamp showing the date of receipt by post shall determine whether expressions of interest have been submitted in good time.

It is expected that any resulting contracts will be concluded by 15th July 2015. These will depend on approval by Bundesnetzagentur, especially regarding the selection of plant operators to be contracted and resulting financial obligations upon the responsible transmission system operator. There is no legal entitlement to conclude a contract.
