An important means of preventing congestion

"In recent years we have seen the cost of resolving congestion increase significantly. TenneT is increasingly deploying the GOPACS platform, which is an important means of preventing congestion. The purpose of GOPACS is to give more parties with flexibility easy access to a growing market for congestion services. Orders on the GOPACS platform contribute to the most cost-effective solution to congestion and solutions can come from all grid areas, from all thinkable assets and from across the country.”

"Optimax Energy is very enthusiastic about GOPACS because it allows us as a young trading company to participate in a congestion management mechanism in the Netherlands through a very transparent and well-defined process. Energy markets are changing rapidly and we believe these mechanisms also need to evolve to meet the challenges ahead in a more innovative and clear way."

"We embrace the transparency that GOPACS brings us in various areas: GOPACS clearly indicates where there are network problems and thus where we cannot further fine-tune our power stations. It also clearly indicates which volumes are sought and traded. This transparency benefits competitiveness."
