The Nordic TSOs and NEMOs have encountered challenges in conducting the external parallel run (EPR) according to schedule. This is due to the prolonged unavailability of the market Simulation Facility used to calculate results and also to stability issues in the coordinated capacity calculation.

Consequently, the timeline has been reassessed and the earliest possible go-live will be Q1 2024.

Due to technical issues, the Simulation Facility could not be used by NEMOs and TSOs in the second half of 2022. NEMOs are now offering an alternative solution for the EPR, which will mitigate the challenges caused by the unavailability of the Simulation Facility.

Stakeholders can expect the first available FB market results based on the alternative solutions in January 2023, at the earliest.
