Settled imbalance volumes

Settled imbalance volumes shows the volumes settled by TenneT with BRP’s on a 15 minute basis, also known as Imbalance Settlement Period (ISP)

Settlement imbalance volumes

The settled volumes are expressed in kWh and are classified in the following categories:

According to direction:

  • Shortage: energy from TenneT to BRP’s with an energy shortage
  • Surplus: energy from BRP’s with an energy surplus to TenneT


  • Saldo: the balance of the energy settled by TenneT with BRP’s:
    • Saldo > 0; means a system surplus
    • Saldo < 0; means a system shortage


Any wrongful allocation of measurement values to BRP’s by grid operators may affect the absolute imbalance volume, but not the net imbalance.
