Register an Interconnector Unit 

Generator Units predominantly cover those entities which are capable of delivering energy to the SEM. Interconnectors are classified as generators in the Single Electricity Market regardless of whether they are either in import or export mode.

Note for Intraday Trading/EWIC Registration:

Already Registered?
If you are already registered as a participant in the SEM and in the ROI jurisdiction and you now wish to trade on the EWIC, then this is possible by using the current process of registering a new unit; see step 2 below.

This means that we are simply adding a new PT or account (if you are already trading as a generator, then you will already have a generator account which can be used for additional interconnector units). You will need to fill out an interconnector user participation notice form and pay the fee that applies to adding the additional unit (Please note post Intraday Trading this will increase to three Participation notices but one fee will remain).

Not Registered yet?
If you are not registered in the ROI jurisdiction or are new to the SEM and not yet registered at Party level then it is strongly advised that you start that process ASAP.

Upon completing Party Registration, a Party is bound by the rules, regulations and obligation as set out in the Trading and Settlement Code. The same process applies for any Participant wishing to take part in the Intraday auctions on the Moyle. Please note the importance of having the banking arrangements for the relevant jurisdiction.
