Prices for balancing energy

The tariff system for the balancing services provided by a Balancing Group Manager (BGM) is a pricing system with the following features:

  • The balancing energy prices to balance the balancing group deviations are calculated for every ¼ hour. A uniform balancing energy price (reBAP) has been in place throughout Germany since 01/06/2010.
  • The balancing energy prices are generally determined from the payments or receipts of the TSO for the control energy used (secondary and tertiary control energy).
  • Symmetrical price for every ¼ hour, i.e. no price spread between positive and negative balancing group deviations.
  • The balancing energy price may also be negative due to the introduction of negative energy prices for tertiary and secondary control power and may therefore also lead to costs for balancing groups with excess supply for example.
