Imbalance Prices in the market area NetConnect Germany

On this page NetConnect Germany publishes the prices it invoices for positive and negative energy imbalances and which are calculated from the relevant reference prices on a daily basis. Please click here for more information on how the prices are calculated. According to the so-called “GaBi Gas” ruling on the German gas balancing regime issued by the German federal regulator Bundesnetzagentur, the imbalance prices are applied to daily imbalances incurred within a balancing group. The resulting charges and payments are settled between the relevant balancing group manager and the market area manager.

Please note that the positive imbalance price (in German: negativer Ausgleichsenergiepreis) is applied to positive energy imbalances (i.e. inputs > offtakes, long position) and the negative imbalance price (in German: positiver Ausgleichsenergiepreis) is applied to negative energy imbalances (i.e. offtakes > inputs, short position).

Please note that the methodology used to calculate the positive and negative imbalance prices has changed following entry into force of the new GaBi 2.0 ruling. For further information on the calculation of positive and negative imbalance prices for balancing periods until 30 September 2015, please click here.
