A precondition for a participation in the tenders for control energy is a successful pre-qualification. In principle, the pre-qualification is taken care of by the transmission system operator (TSO) to whose control area the relevant technical unit is connected (connecting TSO). 50Hertz endeavours to pre-qualify as many potential suppliers for the different types of control reserve as possible. Further information can be found at www.regelleistung.net.
The current framework agreements can be found under Downloads on the www.regelleistung.net web page. The pre-qualification documents have to be filled in completely and signed in a legally binding manner:
- for primary and secondary control reserve: annexe D1 or annexe D2 to the Transmission Code and specific pre-qualification documents of 50Hertz
- for tertiary control reserve: annexe D3 to the Transmission Code, including the attachments thereto.
Please send the documents to the following address:
50Hertz Transmission GmbH
Should you have any further questions related to the pre-qualification procedure or the framework agreements, please send an e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
50Hertz reserves the right to adjust or update this information.

Chapter 5 "System Services" contains the general requirements, annexes D1-D3 the detailed requirements for the different types of control reserve: PCR, SCR or TCR.
