On this page NetConnect Germany publishes information relating to the determination of the positive and negative daily imbalance prices it applies as of 01 October 2015 (reference prices). Please note that all data published here are only preliminary. The final
positive and negative daily imbalance prices can be found
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).
The information published comprises the evolution of marginal buy prices and marginal sell prices and includes information on the highest system balancing buy price, the lowest system balancing sell price, the weighted average price of gas including a small adjustment of +/-2%, and the anticipated positive and negative daily imbalance prices, with the latter being updated on an hourly basis. If external balancing gas is procured in adjacent market areas, the transportation cost surcharges are also included in the determination of the daily positive and/or negative imbalance prices.
