In Finland, the current terms and conditions of the Balticconnector capacity allocation mechanism have been approved by the Finnish Energy Authority until the end of 2021. In the confirmation decision, the Energy Authority obliged Gasgrid Finland to submit a survey on how the applicable capacity allocation mechanism in the Balticconnector interconnection point can be developed so that it responds to capacity demand better considering legislative requirements. Gasgrid Finland submitted the survey for the Energy Authority on 29th of April.
In conjunction with the survey, Gasgrid requested the Energy Authority’s opinion on the proposal regarding Balticconnector capacity allocation mechanism described in the survey. Gasgrid published the survey on its website. The unofficial English translation of the survey submitted for the Finnish Energy Authority can be found here.
