Electricity plays a crucial role in our daily lives. Since it is available at the flick of a switch, we often forget about the complex high-voltage system that forms the link between generation and demand. Europe’s high-voltage grids being highly interconnected, transnational coordination is therefore essential for security of supply.
In close cooperation with the other RCCs, we develop and provide coordination regulated services to secure operations of the high-voltage electricity system, across the entire European continent.
Operating 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, our objective is to proactively support Transmission System Operators to ensure security of supply on a European regional basis. Focusing on the coordination of grid operational planning activities, we anticipate operations both in the long-term and the short-term, from a year-ahead until intraday timeframes (few hours before real time).
