|Fee for the Redelivery of Flexibility "CRF"

|Fee for the Redelivery of Temporary Storage "CRS"
The variable fee valid until 30st September 2024, payable by the User, is calculated on the absolute value of the Redelivery Program Variation of the activated temporary storage volumes. The rate depends on the usage thresholds as provided below:
The rate must be considered in ranges. For example, if the User uses 20.000 MWh of temporary storage, he will have to pay the following amount:
11.000 MWh * 0,10 €/MWh + (20.000 MWh – 11.000 MWh) * 0,13 €/MWh
The Temporary Storage service is offered if there is no request for the flexibility service. At each term of validity of the CRS fee, the Operating Company may allocate the Temporary Storage Service trough auction procedures.

CBO = Cqs x 0,05% x (Temporary Storage volumes) x (n Temporary Storage Days)
