The adoption of a single and unified electricity market is one of the main challenges faced by Europe today. Northern and Western Europe have already made some progress during recent years towards the achievement of this objective. However, South-Eastern Europe (SEE) is still to tackle substantial barriers in order to catch up with the more experienced EU regions.
TRINITY will address this challenge in order to improve the current situation and facilitate the interconnection of South-Eastern electricity markets – among themselves and within the current Multi Regional Coupling area (MRC).
TRINITY will develop a set of solutions to enhance cooperation and coordination among the transmission system operators of SEE in order to support the integration of the electricity markets in the region, whilst promoting higher penetration of clean energies.
This strategic goal will be driven by end-users: 6 Transmission System Operators (TSOs), 5 Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs), 1 Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) and 3 Renewable Energy Source (RES) promoters) and will be achieved through the deployment in the region of four independent, but complementary, TRINITY products.
