The general principles of the concept paper are based on the objectives of the Clean Energy Package to include the entire flexibility available on the market, allowing it to participate equally with generation at all market levels. This requires, as a first step, to establish a clear market framework and the principles for data exchange for the settlement of the activated flexibility, which is addressed with this document.

As part of the consultation, market participants have been asked to comment on the market model, settlement principles and approach to data exchange proposed in the document.

Feedback may be provided in free form writing. In addition, the document also contains more detailed questions under point 17 of Chapter IV, to facilitate the provision and collection of feedback, but the response to those is optional.
