The Regional Co-ordination Committee (RCC) of the Central West region, which assembles the five regulators CREG, CRE, BNetzA, ILR and has set out concrete steps necessary to foster regional integration of the electricity markets during the next two years and aims to guarantee, from 2007 onwards, an entirely regional approach to market integration in the Central West region.

Priority areas mentioned in the action plan include harmonisation and improvement of the long-term explicit auction rules, including firmness of cross-border capacity allocation, implementation of a day-ahead flow-based market coupling, establishment of a common calculation method for cross-border capacities, and maximisation of the amount and of the utilisation of cross-border capacities.
