When will DK1 participate in the following Nordic markets: aFRR capacity market; mFRR capacity market; mFRR activation market? 

The plan for DK1 is to participate in the Nordic aFRR Capacity Market as soon as the Nordic LFC controllers start balancing the individual LFC areas. As long as the Nordic aFRR activations are frequency based, it will be very challenging to combine that with DK1, where aFRR activations are ACE based.
DK1 is already part of the Nordic mFRR energy activation market, and will continue to be so, until the entire Nordic joins the MARI platform. As DK1 is already part of the Nordic Energy activation market – DK1 can join a Nordic mFRR capacity market as soon as this will be established.


Will DK1 participate in PICASSO from first go-live?

A prerequisite for DK1 to join PICASSO will at least be to have the 15 minutes ISP implemented, in order to keep a certain relationship between bid price and BSP settlement Vs Imbalance price and BRP settlement. The intention is to join together with rest of Nordic countries.


Will DK1 participate in MARI from first go-live? 

A prerequisite for DK1 to join MARI will at least be to have the 15 minutes ISP implemented, in order to keep a certain relationship between bid price and BSP settlement Vs Imbalance price and BRP settlement. The intention is to join together with rest of Nordic countries.


Will DK 1 situation affect other Nordic bidding areas? 

If DK1 at any point in time has an ISP that deviates from the rest of the Nordics, it will affect other bidding zones as well (settlement, exchange of reserves etc.)


Could DK1 participate in Nordic mFRR energy activation market, continental aFRR energy activation market (PICASSO) at the same time? 

In theory yes and please refer to previous answer.


Will this be possible with 15 min ISP or with 60 min ISP? 

Participation in PICASSO requires 15 min ISP, in order to keep a certain relationship between bid price and BSP settlement Vs Imbalance price and BRP settlement.


When will DK1 move to 15 min ISP? 

The intention is to do it together with DK2, and rest of the Nordic.


Can DK1 move to 15 min ISP before eSett is ready? 

In theory yes, but that would require new and interim IT systems.


Can DK1 on 15 min ISP participate in the hourly Nordic markets for aFRR, mFRR etc?

In theory yes, but not so relevant, please refer to previous answers.
