State-owned power grid operator EMS (Public Enterprise Elektromreže Srbije) is expected to express interest by the end of June in using the services of the Coordinated Auction Office in South East Europe (SEE CAO), SeeNews reported.

EMS is expected to officially express the interest, including definition of the borders with SEE CAO shareholders that should be serviced by the auction office, which disclosed the information in a presentation. Upon receipt of the expression of interest, SEE CAO will by the end of August define the admission fee and agreement for services with same conditions as for its shareholders, to be signed by mid-October.

In order to include EMS borders in auctions for 2016, SEE CAO is willing to accept only service provision for EMS, the presentation showed. The main aim of the SEE CAO initiative, involving the transmission system operators of Albania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Greece, Montenegro, Romania, Slovenia, Kosovo* and Turkey, is to harmonise congestion management methods and optimise cross border capacity allocation, the report said.

The SEE CAO’s project team company was established in Montenegro’s capital Podgorica in July. It began holding auctions in late 2014. The office said it plans to launch monthly auctions on the Greek-Turkish border in September, with annual auctions on the Greek-Albanian border seen in 2016.
