Balance energy quantities utilized
If the actual EEG* feed in corresponded with the last forecast of a certain date of performance, the balance energy used would match the difference between electricity to be sold according to this aforementioned forecast and the actual traded quantities on the day ahead and intraday spot market.
In fact the actual feed in from EEG plants differs from the recent forecast. Thus the generated differences have to be balanced through utilization of balance energy.
The balance energy quantities are listed below per quarter hour.
