Procurement of automatic Frequency Restoration Reserve (aFRR) in Q2/2021 (weeks 14-26)

The Nordic TSOs have decided to keep the current aFRR procurement of 104 hours per week in Q2/2021. The total volume will be varied with approximately 300 MW in most hours and approximately 400 MW in morning hours during weekdays.

The basis for the procurement is the agreed goal for frequency quality level, and the TSOs will continue to procure aFRR in the hours where the system balancing is most challenging.

Starting from Monday 5 April 2021, aFRR procurement continues for the same hours as in the previous quarter, detailed below in Central European Time (CET):
