Imbalance Price Area (Electricity Balancing Market)
European Union Electricity Market Glossary

 


 

 

According to Article 2(13) of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2195 of 23 November 2017 establishing a guideline on electricity balancing ‘imbalance price area’ is the area for the calculation of an imbalance price.

 

Also the so-called 'Winter Energy Package' defines an 'imbalance price area' as the area in which an imbalance price is calculated (Article 2(2)(p) of the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the internal market for electricity (recast), 30.11.2016, COM(2016) 861 final 2016/0379 (COD)).

 

 

The proposed Electricity Market Regulation in so far does not move into the direction of an efficient and integrated EU power system. It, on the contrary, adds confusion to the definition of bidding zones. Art. 13, in fact, states that “each bidding zone should be equal to an imbalance price area”. Such a wording would automatically trigger current bidding zones splits and lead to further fragmented and not united markets. We therefore call for legislators to reverse such a definition, having imbalance price areas to follow bidding zones configuration.

Article 13(2) of the said Proposal for a Regulation envisions the rule that each bidding zone should be equal to an imbalance price area.
