YOUR ULTIMATE IP AND EXIT POINT CAPACITY ALLOCATION TOOL
Gas Capacity-IP (RBP) is a leading-edge online capacity booking platform which supports capacity allocation on the cross-border interconnection points of the European Union. It helps participants of the gas market to acquire the necessary amount of capacity via consequent auctions.
Gas Capacity-IP fulfills the requirements laid down in Regulation 984/2013 (Capacity Allocation Mechanisms Network Code) in a user-friendly and cost-efficient way, and it supports the integration of the gas market.
Gas Capacity-IP has already unleashed new business opportunities: 60 network users and 7 transmission system operators can easily participate in auctions generated on more than 320 Hungarian domestic network points and interconnectors with more than 500 000 successfully conducted capacity auctions (yearly, quarterly, monthly, daily and within-day) so far.
Gas Capacity-IP is a fully online capacity booking platform, designed and implemented especially for the purpose of fulfilling the requirements laid down in Regulation 984/2013 (Capacity Allocation Mechanisms Network Code) in a user-friendly and cost-efficient way, and it supports the integration of the gas market.
In order to minimize adaption costs and time, Gas Capacity-IP was designed to be an Internet-based, thin client solution for both network users and TSOs. It means that everyone may use their current back-end (mainly capacity and contract management) systems without the need to modify or add additional modules to them.
Various connection models assist TSOs and network users to optimize the usage of Gas Capacity-IP according to their business operations. Intuitive graphic user interfaces, built-in Excel uploads and freely accessible SOAP interfaces enable users to customize their connection according to their data exchange requirements and to flexibly upgrade them when required.
The system was designed to meet the necessities of market regulations and applies the best industry practises. However, its flexible design provides enough fields for customisation needed to satisfy individual requirements as well.
Thanks to its careful architecture design, Gas Capacity-IP can deal with any scale of capacity auctioning needs with any number of system users.
Based on the rules described in CAM NC, Gas Capacity-IP offers the possibility to adjacent TSO members or other system operators to offer their capacity jointly in auctions in the form of bundled firm or interruptible capacity. The application also enables the run of unbundled firm or interruptible capacities by the same TSO member(s) or other system operators.
Gas Capacity-IP offers an opportunity to allocate non-standard capacity products according to CAM NC.
Gas Capacity-IP makes it also possible to conditionally allocate parallel offer levels according to the CAM NC auction mechanisms.
It ensures the potential to trade allocated capacities on a bilateral (over-the-counter) basis.
Gas Capacity-IP provides comprehensive support of the congestion management procedures (surrender and buy back).
