 Project title: Study Visit on The Role of the Regulatory Authorities in enhancing cost-effective transmission
 system design by coordinating transmission system operator and generation companies

  N.B.: only type-written and fully completed applications will be accepted

  Beneficiary country:                                                  Republic of Turkey
  Beneficiary Ministry/Service:                                         Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA)
  Date of submission:                                                   24.02.2009
  Objective of the Study Visit:

  By the adoption of The Electricity Market Law, Turkey has started to unbundle its former vertically integrated
  electricity sector by liberalizing generation and trading activities while regulating grid services that are considered
  natural monopolies.

  In Turkey, before the unbundling of the electricity market; transmission, distribution and generation activities was in
  control of a single public company (TEAŞ), and this company was deciding which transmission lines to construct or
  expand in accordance with the generation companies being planned to be constructed. However, after the
  liberalization period, generation firms are seperated from the control of the transmission company and new
  privately-owned generation companies are started to come into market.

  While the liberalization idea aims to maintain the cost-effective structure of the competitive markets, it prevents the
  cost-effectiveness of the vertically integrated structure where the single firm cooperating both transmission and
  generation utilities, providing the global optimum (cost-effectiveness) for the whole system.

  In a liberalized market, firms individually aim to maximize their profits. However these individual optimizations do
  not yield to total cost-effectiveness of the system. For instance, an optimum location for a generation company may
  cost much for the transmission system to operate, hence increasing total sytem cost.

  In addition to the individual optimality issue, another problem is that companies getting generation licences from
  the Regulatory Authorities are not guaranteed to construct the utility to the location specified in the licence
  certificate. And this uncertainty also complicates the transmission company in the decision process of in which
  locations to invest and which lines to expand.

  To sum up, together with the competitive benefits of the unbundling period, it has also disadvantages in that
  transmission company and generation companies are seperately directed and therefore there is a loss of efficiency in
  the whole system. Regulatory Authorities should have roles in the market compensating the disadvantages of the
  unbundling process and the aim of this study visit will concentrate on this issue.

Currently, generation firms decide the location where they will construct the power plant and they negotiate with the
transmission company for the connection point. Regulatory Authority does not have any guidance in this process.
