National Grid has signed an agreement with 18 other grid operators around Europe to develop a system to enable the sharing of energy balancing services across the continent.  The European Commission is establishing regulation to enable the cross-border exchange of all types of balancing services and not just frequency response. The draft regulation states that this connectivity will enhance efficiency at both the European and national level, “promoting the possibilities for exchanges of balancing services while contributing to operational security”, and enabling electricity grids to absorb a growing volume of renewable generation.
