1 1 ERGEG Regional Initiative Region South-South East 4th Stakeholder Group meeting Italian Balancing Point TF How to create regional markets for balancing in practice Athens 10 June 2008

2 2 The development of hub as Balancing points has been identified by ERGEG as one of the KEY objective of the SSE Regional Initiative The IBP TF recognized that implementation of a balancing market would positively impact the functioning of the overall gas market The balancing market mechanism contributes to improve the liquidity of the hub and the trading of gas How to create regional markets for balancing in practice

3 3 Create regional markets for balancing in practice The TF point of view In principle the balancing point should have a regional extention In practice however the SSE regional market lacks: - an harmonized business environment - a well meshed gas grid - adequate available interconnection capacities Two/three balancing points in the SSE region is a more realistic objective

4 4 Create regional markets for balancing in practice The TF point of view As a first step develop two/three hubs in the region acting as balancing points for their reference area. In the longer term the local balancing points could evolve to a regional dimension.

5 5 Focus on the Italian Balancing Point The IBP Activity Workshop with the Italian Association of Energy Traders (Aiget) November 2007 Meeting with the Regulatory Authority - December March 2008 Meeting with the Italian Transmission Operator (SRG) - January 2008 Meetings with the main Network Users

6 A balancing point for the Italian gas market IBP TF Preferred features Daily balancing mechanism: higher guarantee for operators with small portfolio; easier to manage Independent Market Operator Anonymous exchanges Clearing price published ex-post Tolerance level: fixed or decreasing with the amount of demand Ex-post trading: as long as the market is not well-functioning and liquid Back-up back-down services provided by the market
