This Nodal Protocol Revision Request (NPRR) replaces the Congestion Revenue Right (CRR) Auction credit calculations with path-specific exposure calculations based on Day-Ahead Market (DAM) clearing prices over a rolling period and revises the Future Credit Exposure (FCE) calculations for CRR Account Holders; which results in a modification to the payment schedule for CRRs.
The current credit calculations collateralize in a uniform manner and do not recognize that different congestion paths have various levels of risk. This can lead to under-collateralization of the riskiest paths, leaving the market exposed, or significant over-collateralization, therefore increasing the cost of participation for many Market Participants. In addition, this proposal allows Market Participants to post collateral in lieu of pre-paying for forward awarded CRRs.
