1. Introduction Mrs Fonck (Elia) introduces the meeting and sets its objectives : to present the experience gathered during the first year of capacity auctioning on the France-Belgium interconnector, and after the start of the market coupling for daily allocation, and to present proposals on possible schemes to split capacity between different timeframes (year, month, day), both for 2007 and 2008. Mrs Bourdon (RTE) and Mrs Pellegrin present the detailed results of the analyses jointly made by Elia and RTE, and explain the proposals for capacity split in 2007 and 2008 (see in appendix the presentation and the documents). Both for 2007 and 2008, two scenarios are presented, to be discussed in this meeting. The proposed scenarios for 2007 are illustrated in the slides 16 to 21 under the annex 1 of the present document. For 2007, 1300 MW have already been allocated in the yearly auction and will, of course, stay fix for the whole year. The proposed scenarios for 2008 are illustrated in the slides 22 to 28 under the annex 1.

2. Discussions Mr Vandenberghe proposes to organise the discussions in four parts : - factual comments on the first part of the presentation: “analyses and observations”, - discussions concerning the proposals for 2007, - discussions concerning the proposals for 2008, and - discussions around the Financial Transmission Rights. 2.1. Factual comments on the first part of the presentation: “analyses and observations” A participant asks precisions on the RTE/Elia assumption that the market needs were not encountered in the current scheme. Elia and RTE first remind that their objective is not to maximise perceived congestion income. RTE and Elia are indeed submitted to the regulation and the possible income resulting from congestion is, in the current regulatory practice, flowing back to the market. The mission of RTE and Elia is to ensure a good market functioning, which passes through, among other things, a convergence of prices between markets with more liquidity and less volatility on the spot market. The objective of the TSOs is to implement mechanisms that meet the needs of all market actors. A participant points out that the influence of the phase shifters installation on the total available capacity is not mentioned in the study, though he assumes it could have an impact. The question of the power reserved for “loop flows” is also addressed. Another participant asks if extra physical capacity on the France-Belgium border will be installed in the coming years.

Elia states that the phase shifters installation is in its final stage. The phase shifters will among others help to manage the “loop flows”. The status on the phase shifter development and their impact on the total available capacity will be addressed during the meeting of the Elia Users Group in June. The impact of these phase shifters is an element to take into consideration for 2008. RTE explains that the “Moulaine-Aubange” project for an additional line should increase the capacity from 2012 on. A smaller impact would also be available in 2010. A participant notices that, though the lack of harmonization between the different interconnections has been pointed out by RTE and Elia, no plan regarding the collaboration on the Northern border with Tennet (TSO in the Netherlands) has been addressed in the presentation. Elia and RTE explain that discussions with Tennet are taking place. The joint discussion on both borders (France-Belgium and Belgium-Netherlands) is however more difficult because five TSOs are then involved (RTE, Tennet, Elia and the two German TSOs neighbouring TenneT). All these TSOs are involved in regional discussions, including also the GermanyFrance interconnection. Elia explains the assumptions taken for the simulation realized to evaluate the impact of the capacity on price convergence (slides 11 & 12 under annex 1) : the tri-lateral market coupling has been re-run with the same bids and available capacities for the period between 22/11/06 and 30/12/06, changing only the daily available capacity from France to Belgium. A participant notes that the bids would probably have been different if a different capacity had been announced. Another participant points out that the warm winter could also be one of the reasons why the price convergence has worked so well up to now. Elia and RTE underline that there is, for them, no doubt that a high capacity combined with the market coupling mechanism leads to a clear price convergence. 2.2. Proposals for 2007 and conclusion As first point, participants ask when the new split rules could be implemented. It is agreed that the retained scenario should be implemented as soon as possible but could reasonably only be implemented from the May monthly allocation on. Starting the discussion, several participants (traders) express their preference for the scenario 1, as it is important for them to have always a non-zero monthly capacity to assure the existence of this important price indicator. Also, on the whole year, in average, the daily capacity is higher in scenario 1 than in scenario 2. Another participant however reminds that his preference would be in favor of maximizing the long term available capacity to create market visibility on the price. The confidence for the good working of the market and/or capacity resales should be sufficient to reduce the spot price spread. A participant reacts to this intervention to note that this is not seen in the effective auction results.

In complement, Elia points out that this assumption supposes that there is no market power and that a perfect competitive market exists. RTE notices that a good market signal is also given by an optimal functioning of the market coupling, for which a sufficient available capacity is needed. A participant confirms that, as for the monthly allocation, a daily price indicator is also necessary and that, therefore, the daily allocation absolutely needs a sufficient minimum available capacity. A participant (representing Belgian industrial electricity consumers) asks for considering a third scenario, proposing 0 MW for the monthly allocation. Another participant points out that to get a monthly price indicator, which seems important for some participants, a monthly capacity of 5MW would be sufficient. The consumers agree to keep a monthly price signal but, as the market coupling allows the best use of the capacity, ask that a maximum should be given to the daily allocation. For example, a minimum of 100 MW could be reserved to the monthly auction and all the rest given to the daily allocation. The Belgian regulator (CREG) asks what is the level of the capacity released, until now, for the daily allocation, by the secondary market. Elia shows the figure and explains that there has been, since the beginning of this mechanism in January 2007, very few participants, and that some of them use it only during off-peak hours. At this stage, it is therefore too soon to make any conclusion. This will have to be taken into account for the discussions for 2008. In complement, the importance of the transparency of available capacity is pointed out by one participant. The TSOs confirm their understanding of this need and explain that one of the purposes of the present consultation is to create transparency on the way the capacity is split between the different timeframes. Therefore, it is important that a method is fixed today, to be implemented in the remainder of 2007. The need to know, as soon as possible, how the capacity will be spitted is confirmed by a participant. This part of the discussions is closed by the jointly definition of an agreed proposal. This proposal, written on the board during the meeting, is outlined under chapter 4 of this document. The French regulator (CRE) asks if it is possible to let a few days to the market actors not present today to give additional comments. It is agreed that RTE and Elia will within the next ten days: -

publish the minutes of this consultation,

-

consider additional comments from the market actors that were not present today, without modifying the outcome of the proposal for 2007,

-

address the proposal for 2007 (as included in chapter 4) to the regulators.

The proposed scenario, if accepted by the regulators, will be implemented from the monthly allocation of May 2007 on. The monthly allocations of April will be based on the present published values of available capacity.

2.3. Open discussion for 2008 The phase shifters implementation, potential increase of capacity on the borders, expected developments on regional markets and harmonization, as well as a longer experience with the market coupling and with the secondary market should be taken into account for the definition of the spit rules for 2008. However, there is no major opposition from the participants against a possible reduction of the available yearly capacity. A participant reminds that, for the consumers, the yearly and daily capacity allocations are the important ones. Indeed, the yearly capacity is used to set bilateral contract up with foreign companies. That’s the reason why this participant considers that the yearly capacity should have an “obligatory use” character. A “netting” between the allocated capacities in both directions (France to Belgium and Belgium to France) could then also be done. The traders are not convinced by any capacity that would be “locked” by an “obligatory use”. Only big portfolio companies could possibly take this risk. There would therefore be no market. The question of European legislation is also asked. Elia points out that the “obligatory use for yearly capacity” is a product of a different type that the one existing for the moment. For the netting, Elia already mentioned that the positive impact would be rarely observed. RTE also asks what would be the benefit of this constraint and notes the optionality of the capacity is then moved to the energy purchase contract. In conclusion of these discussions, it’s agreed that another consultation meeting will be planned by the TSOs in Autumn 2007, to define the way to split the capacity between the different timeframes for 2008. By then, the TSOs should have more advanced analyses and observations on the impact of the summer 2007, the working of the secondary market and the possible impact of the phase shifters. One other important element will be the status of the work engaged by DTe for the capacity allocation and repartition mechanisms at the BelgiumNetherlands border and of the regional discussions. 2.4. Opinion of the assembly on the Financial Transmission Rights As proposed by the TSOs, some discussions around the Financial Transmission Rights take place. There is no fundamental reaction against this mechanism but the needs of more explanations and of a careful approach are formulated by the participants. To give all his trust in one unique market, even having more means, supposing perfect market and competition seems indeed risky to some participants. It’s specified that the Financial Transmission Rights in question would be “sold” by the TSOs at the level of the real available capacity, at the difference of the CFDs used in the Nordic countries. A participant says that implementing “Use-it-or-sell-it” principle would be a good first step in the direction of FTR.

3. Proposals for 2007 In conclusion of the discussions, following rules were defined to split the capacity between the different timeframes for the end of 2007, starting on with the calculation of the monthly capacity for May 2007. From France to Belgium : An amended scenario 1 is agreed with following characteristics : -

Among the 1700 MW that are guaranteed in 2007 from France to Belgium, 1300 MW have already been allocated in the yearly auctions; when possible, a minimum of 100 MW will be dedicated to the monthly auction and a minimum of 400 MW to the daily allocation by market coupling; if these 500 MW minimum capacities could not be respected, the difference will be split between: 25% to the monthly capacity and 75% to the daily capacity, respecting the total minimum capacity of 1700 MW; furthermore, from the complementary volume calculated each month above these first 500 MW, 25% would be allocated to the monthly auction and 75% to the daily allocation by market coupling, this complementary volume being calculated before the integration of the resales of yearly capacities to the monthly auctions, in the framework of the secondary capacity market.

Concretely, this means the following repartition depending on the following specific monthly NTC in the direction France to Belgium: Monthly NTC 1700 1900 2100 2300

Yearly ATC 1300 1300 1300 1300

Monthly ATC 75 125 175 225

Minimum Daily ATC 325 475 625 775

Y+M ATC (%) 81 % 75 % 70 % 66 %

Minimum Daily ATC (%) 19 % 25 % 30 % 34 %

From Belgium to France : Scenario 1 is agreed : -

Among the 600 MW that are guaranteed in 2007 from Belgium to France, 400 MW have already been allocated in the yearly auctions; a minimum of 100 MW of the remaining guaranteed capacity will be dedicated to the monthly auction and a minimum of 100 MW to the daily allocation by market coupling; from the complementary volume calculated each month, 50% would be allocated to the monthly auction and 50% to the daily allocation by market coupling, this complementary volume being calculated before the integration of the resales of yearly capacities to the monthly auctions, in the framework of the secondary capacity market.

Concretely, this means the following repartition depending on the following specific monthly NTC in the direction Belgium to France:

Conclusions from these analyses : z Capacity repartition between the different interconnections is far from being harmonised. z The split of capacities between the different timeframes seems not to correspond to the market needs. z Price convergence between the coupled markets highly depends on the level of available capacity. z The available capacity is reduced in summer months => risk of divergence of the prices between the markets with the present splitting rules.
