In this way, notification of a change of power that exceeds the possibilities of achieving this imbalance is penalized by both the notification and the market price equalization;

– The translation was made possible to increase power supply and the reduction of power supply entering.

– Specific penalty for non-delivery of balancing energy to consider the difference between the maximum price of the dispatcher and the price range on offer.

The fee for the notification imbalance, applies to the quantity available notified to the dispatcher. The purpose of this tax is to empower participants in the balancing market contraction and proper notification before dispatching range of production that can be achieved and will lead to further cost reduction recorded directly in recent market balancing, reads the note from ANRE .
