Example of balance calculation

Example of balance calculation. The example concerns a balance responsible party whose actual production 60 MWh, actual consumption -40 MWh, and sales to day ahead market -30 MWh.

Composition of balance

  • actual production total 60 MWh
  • sales to day ahead market -30 MWh
  • actual consumption total -40 MWh


The balance responsible party’s balance deviation (imbalance) is a deficit of -10 MWh. In order to cover this, Fingrid will sell balance energy to the balance responsible party at the sales price of imbalance energy, with the imbalance fee for imbalance energy added to the price.

Prices of imbalance energy

The purchase and sales price of imbalance energy are determined as shown in the table below.
