Balansys, the market based balancing system

Since 2015, Fluxys Belgium and Creos Luxembourg, merged the Belgian and Luxembourg H-gas markets in one cross-border integrated gas market. They created “Balansys” which has been appointed as the Balancing Operator which offers the balancing services in the BeLux area.
