As one of the six Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) and future RCC (Regional Coordination Centre), Coreso proactively supports European Transmission System Operators (TSOs) to ensure the security of electricity supply on a European regional basis.
Our RSC and future RCC activities consist of performing analyses, developing services, providing and coordinating solutions for TSOs, as service providers. Coreso engineers combine their expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to anticipate the operations both in the short term and the long term, from a year-ahead until intraday (few hours before real time).
The interconnected European power systems being complex, Coreso coordination role is essential to guarantee a more efficient and secure transmission grid. The development of renewable energies, which are by nature intermittent, and the increase in cross-border exchanges within the European electricity market make electricity flows increasingly variable. In this area, Coreso has demonstrated and continues to demonstrate daily a significant level of reliability and expertise. Besides, our added value in terms of proactive identification of situations likely to present a risk to the electrical system is now critical. Indeed, risks can only be detected by building an overview beyond the national framework of each individual transmission network.
Europe aiming for green transition and digital transformation, Coreso is also playing a leading role in the development and the implementation of network codes as well as regulated tasks required by the Clean Energy Package. Enhancing regional coordination, these regulations will enable member states to increase the integration of renewable energies while improving efficiency and competitiveness on the European electricity market.
