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.

Transmission services for the Belgian Market

Domestic services enable natural gas to be withdrawn from or injected to a zone of the Belgian transmission grid at a domestic point.

Those services target two main groups:

  • End-users, composed by Industry, power plants and combined heat and power facilities (CHP).
  • Grids of Distribution Systems Operators, that will bring your gas to Households and SMEs.
