On 29 October, Energy Community Secretariat experts led a workshop in Kyiv, addressing the key mechanisms for future management of unintentional deviations* between power systems of Ukraine and Moldova. Representatives of the national regulatory authorities and transmission system operators from Moldova and Ukraine engaged in an active discussion on the regulatory requirements for the settlement of the unintended exchanges in line with current practice in EU Member States and discussed approaches in designing the arrangements for settlement of unintentional deviations between power systems. Furthermore, the model of the new ENTSO-E methodology for Continental Europe on the common settlement rules for all unintended exchanges of energy was presented.

The technical assistance is part of EU4Energy support for electricity market reforms in Ukraine and Moldova.

*An unintentional deviation is the difference between the actual energy exchange that has taken place in a given time interval (unintended physical power exchange of a control area) and the scheduled control program of a control area (or a control block), without taking into account the effect of the frequency bias, following the sign convention. [ENTSO-E Glossary]

* The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
