Harmonized activation process

The Harmonized Activation Process (HAP) for a single redispatch request

How can EIVs participate?

To participate in the HAP, the EIV requires software that can process the files and send the corresponding responses back to the TSO. The TSOs provide the RACE - Redispatch Activation Client for this purpose. This application is free of charge for the EIV. Further information on this can be found below. However, an EIV is also free to configure its own solution for the coordination processes. The EIV is then responsible for the proper functioning of its own software solutions. The process description and the attached format descriptions and examples therefore need to be taken into account. These can also be found below. Commissioning for EIVs always takes place in consultation with the connecting TSO and is accompanied by extensive integration and technical tests. The TSOs recommend the use of the RACE. This has already been successfully tested operationally with a large number of EIVs. In addition, further developments and adaptations are covered by the TSOs.
