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).
Control area balance
The control area balance published here corresponds to the sum of all balance group deviations of balance groups registered at the transmission system operator and of the relevant balance groups owned by the transmission system operator (e.g. EEG, grid losses, unintentional deviation).
As balance group deviations are not immediately available online the control area balance is calculated on the basis of the corresponding use of balancing power. The published data are values from operating measurements that are adjusted by measurement corrections if necessary. The actual settlement-relevant data can be retrieved under the prices for grid balancing.
