How to apply for power exchange designation in Sweden
A company applying to be designated as a power exchange in Sweden needs to clearly demonstrate to the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate (Ei) that the company complies with all of the requirements set out in Article 6 of the Regulation on Capacity Allocation and Congestions Management.
The company must maintain compliance with the requirements. This is a compulsory obligation for a company to be designated and also to retain the status of being designated as a power exchange.
Ei, or other national regulatory authorities in other Member States where the company operates as a power exchange, has the right to revoke the designation if the company fails to maintain compliance with the requirements set out in Article 6 of the Regulation.
