Financial settlement of RLM quantity differences


With effect from 1 October 2015 the previous RLM quantity reconciliation process has been replaced by a new process for the financial settlement of so-called RLM quantity differences. For the purpose of this process network operators submit two allocation messages for RLM exit points (i.e. exit points equipped with a supply meter installation which records hourly consumption), once calculated using the preliminary calorific value which is applied for energy balancing purposes and once calculated using the final calorific value which is applied for consumption billing purposes, with both RLM allocation messages including adjustments to take account of erroneous or unavailable meter readings.

The difference between these two quantities (the “RLM quantity difference”) is financially settled.
