“Croatia’s spot power exchange CROPEX said on Tuesday it had merged its day-ahead market with Slovenian counterpart BSP SouthPool, linking it up to the wider European power market.

Croatia is now part of Multi-Regional Coupling (MRC) project which includes 19 countries that account for about 85 percent of European power demand.

Coupling aims to optimise allocation of cross-border power capacity by coordinating price calculations and flows between countries. This minimises price differentials between regions, spurs on competition and stabilises prices for consumers.” (Reuters)
