Subscribing services

Requesting services: several sales channels

In order to subscribe transmission services, a party must first register as a grid user, as described in the access code for transmission (ACT - Attachment B). 

Transmission services can be requested as follows:

  • Via the capacity platform PRISMA: Transmission services on interconnection points
  • Via the Fluxys Belgium’ Electronic Booking System (EBS): Transmission services on end user domestic exit points
  • In Writing: Quality Conversion, Zee Platform, ZTP Trading, Imbalance Pooling, L/H Capacity Switch, Reshuffling Service, Capacity Conversion Service Case

 

An overview of the different transmission services sales channels, allocation method and product duration is available here.

Capacity towards distribution networks is allocated implicitly by Fluxys Belgium (for more information).

Prisma

Transmission services offered on PRISMA are made available either as bundled either as unbundled products via:

  • NC CAM interconnection points via auctions of standard products (Year, Quarter, Month, Day-Ahead and Within Day);
  • Non-NC CAM interconnection points via First-Committed-First-Served for any duration (Video Prisma FCFS bookings)

ENTSOG makes available the auction calendar on an annual basis, for the period of March of the considered year until February the next year:

Auction Calendar for Y, Q and M auctions scheduled for March 2018 until February 2019 (incl)
> Auction Calendar for D and WD auctions scheduled for March 2018 until February 2019 (incl)

The secondary market is an alternative source for grid users looking to buy capacity and an outlet for grid users wishing to sell capacity they do not intend to use.

Tips for using search operators

Use "quotation marks" to search for a series of words or a phrase in a specific order.

Boolean operators

You can find a group of words or a phrase by using the link words AND, OR and NOT:
known as Boolean operators, these words are used to combine terms in the search field.

  • AND: All the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple AND Pear will return publications containing both the word Apple and the word Pear.

     

  • OR :  At least one of the search terms must be included in the publication. Typing in Apple OR Pear will return publications containing either the word Apple or the word Pear or both.

     

  • NOT: The term preceded by NOT must not be included in the publication. Typing in Apple NOT Pear will return publications containing the word Apple but not the word Pear.
