Information for balance group representatives

This section contains information on how to register as a balance group representative (BGR) in the distribution area.

The various market participants in the distribution area, including the suppliers, traders and consumers, are consolidated into “balance groups”. The main purpose of these is to balance gas injection and withdrawal.

Capacity reservations must be submitted to the distribution area manager for all schedule notifications at the cross-border interconnection points in the distribution area. However, balance group representatives do not require capacity allocations for supplies to consumers, or injections to/withdrawals from interconnection points for shipments to/from storage facilities or from production systems.
