SEEPEX role in TRINITY project

What is TRINITY project about?

TRINITY (TRansmission system enhancement of regIoNal borders by means of IntellIgenT market technologY) is a project which main goal is to enhance cooperation and coordination among the Transmission System Operators of South-Eastern Europe (SEE) in order to support the integration of the electricity markets in the region, whilst promoting higher penetration of clean energies.
TRINITY addresses the EU’s Research Horizon Framework 2020 Programme within the call Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future: secure, clean and efficient energy (“LC-SC3-ES-2-2019: Solutions for increased regional cross-border cooperation in the transmission grid”.
TRINITY’s team, composed of 19 partners from 11 countries, aims to:
– Enhance cross border trading and balancing energy exchange – Ensure electricity market integration
– Increase share of RES in SEE
– Improve security of system operation in the context of increased RES.
– Better regional coordination, interaction, and communication
The three main drivers of the project objectives: Market integration, TSOs coordination and RES promotion – are directly covered by three of the TRINITY products, that will interact together thanks to the fourth project result, the T-COORDINATION PLATFORM.
SEEPEX is the leader of Work Package 3: TRINITY SEE Cross-Border Market Coupling Framework. Starting from the already on-going process of day-ahead markets coupling, WP3 aims to demonstrate benefits of a coordinated work of the following markets between countries in the region, taking into consideration EU and non-EU countries:
– Intra-day electricity market
– Common regional capacity reserve market
– Bilateral trade
– Guarantees of Origin market
For each abovementioned market, a suitable market module is under development. All these modules are being built in parallel, taking into consideration the interface towards other modules that are the subjects of WP5 (RES platform) and WP6 (Coordination platform). The following diagrams disclose the participants in each module.
