National Open Access Registry goes live

The National Open Access Registry (NOAR) successfully went live on May 1, 2022. The NOAR has been designed as an integrated single-window el­ec­tronic platform accessible to all stakeholders, including open access participants, traders, power exchanges, national/regional/state load des­pat­ch centres for electronic processing of short-term open access (STOA) applications, thereby automating the administration of STOA in the interstate transmission system. The NOAR will enable seamless market participation by open access consumers, with easier and faster access to the short-term electricity market.
