Portugal to auction 3.5 TWh of GOs on 28 July

Thursday, 08 July 2021

The auctioned GOs are from renewable energy which benefited from production or investment support, and the revenue will revert to the National Electric System. The auction will be conducted by regulated market operator OMIP, S.A. (OMIP), which will admit participants. Prior registration in the Portuguese Issuing Body (EEGO) is mandatory. 

The Auction GO-PT model is as follows:

  • Several auctions can take place simultaneously and independently. Specific lots (based on classifications including technology and production period) will be auctioned through individual auctions.
  • The results of the auction, after approval by DGEG, are sent by OMIP to CUR and EEGO for subsequent financial and physical settlement.

The GOs would be sold in eight lots and in total represent 3.5 TWh of GOs. The GOs are of 2020 and 2021 vintage with 2.1 TWh GOs from Wind and 0.7 TWh from Hydro. The reserve price is: 0.10 €/MWh.
