Requesting TSO means the Transmission System Operator (TSO), that requests the delivery of balancing energy (Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 of 23 November 2017 establishing a guideline on electricity balancing, Article 2(45)).
According to Article 29(6) of the said Regulation 2017/2195 the request for activation of a balancing energy bid from the activation optimisation function shall oblige the requesting TSO and connecting TSO to accept the firm exchange of balancing energy.
Article 29(12) of the Commission Regulation 2017/2195 stipulates that each requesting TSO may request the activation of balancing energy bids from the common merit order lists up to the total volume of balancing energy.
The total volume of balancing energy that can be activated by the requesting TSO from balancing energy bids from the common merit order lists is calculated as a sum of volumes of:
(a) balancing energy bids submitted by the requesting TSO not resulting from sharing of reserves or exchange of balancing capacity;
(b) balancing energy bids submitted by other TSOs as a result of balancing capacity procured on behalf of the requesting TSO;
(c) balancing energy bids resulting from the sharing of reserves under the condition that the other TSOs participating in the sharing of reserves have not already requested the activation of those shared volumes.
