We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).
The energy-related processing of the trading, distribution and grid activities is performed via a balance group.

The basis for a stable power grid are properly managed balance groups. These represent the smallest unit of an energy market model. In the energy industry, balance groups serve as virtual energy quantity nodes and connect the virtual world (electricity market) to the physical world, the flow of energy within the power grids. These “virtual energy quantity nodes” make it possible for market participants to balance the infeed and feed-out amounts assigned on the basis of schedules.
A balance group can contain any number of feed-out and feed-in points within a control area. The balance responsible party (BRP) is responsible for maintaining a 1/4-hour balance (adequacy) and for any remaining deviations.
TenneT TSO GmbH adjusts out the remaining deviations with balancing energy and charges the balance responsible party for this balancing energy.
