German TSOs publish German version of the PRISMA evaluation report
The German TSO's legal requirement to provide an evaluation report stems from the "Determination in the Matter of Capacity Management and Auction Proceedings in the Gas Sector" (also called KARLA Gas) by the German regulator BNetzA, which requires the German TSOs to evaluate PRISMAs auction processes as well as the participation of potential and real market participants on a regular basis and to report the results to the German regulator at least once a year.
The evaluation report can be found in the download section of the PRISMA platform at www.prisma-capacity.eu.
PRISMA European Capacity Platform GmbH
PRISMA was founded by major European TSOs from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands with the aim to create a joint European capacity platform.
The new European Platform PRISMA, which was launched in April 2013, is the first platform to have implemented the Network Code on Capacity Allocation Mechanisms, the future European market rules for allocating natural gas transport capacity, which will come into force in November 2015.
There are currently 27 European TSOs from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and Spain connected to the platform and market transport capacity via PRISMA. 22 TSOs are shareholders of PRISMA.
With its harmonised capacity products and auction mechanisms and its ability to serve a high number of TSO backend systems in accordance with the CAM Network Code, PRISMA is a major step towards an integrated European gas market.
