Call for expressions of interest in accordance with s. 4 para 2 of the German Regulation on Reserve Power Plants (ResKV)

in accordance with the provisions of the German regulation on reserve power plants(abbr. Reservekraftwerksverordnung - ResKV) dated 27 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, and has published the associated report in accordance with s. 3 para 1 ResKV.

The report by the Bundesnetzagentur identifies a direct additional requirement for a total of 518 MW generation capacity for the network reserve, which must be contracted by the transmission system operator via a call for expressions of interest in accordance with s. 4 ResKV in conjunction with the transitional deadlines for 2013 as per s. 13 para 1 ResKV.

We hereby invite interested operators of electricity generation or storage facilities (“plant”) to submit an expression of interest in accordance with s. 4 para 2 ResKV to have their plant included in the network reserve. To submit expressions of interest, interested operators are required to complete the documents supplied for the purpose and 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 network region in question and the technical parameters involved, are included in the documents provided.

The deadline for submissions as per s. 13 para 1 no. 2 ResKV is 1 October 2013. 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 15 October 2013 pursuant to s. 13 para 1 no. 3 ResKV. These will depend on approval by the Bundesnetzagentur, especially regarding the resulting financial obligations upon the responsible transmission system operator. There is no legal entitlement to conclude a contract.
