Standard RR need satisfied by TERRE: Standard Replacement Reserve need requested by RTE and satisfied by the TERRE platform.
Imbalance: Sums of activated energies listed above (upward activations/imports counted negatively; downward activations down/exports counted positively)
Trend: Upward if the overall imbalance of the French power system is negative or zero and downward in the opposite case.
ISP: Imbalance Settlement Price.
BEWAP: Balancing Energy volume Weighted Average Price.
BEMP: Balancing Energy Marginal Price.
Energy volume activated for electric system balance: Sums of specific balancing bids activated for P = C balance reason and the standard RR need satisfied by TERRE platform.
Energy volume activated for congestion: Specific balancing bids activated to resolve congestion.
Energy volume activated for SSY: Specific balancing bids activated to reconstitute frequency ancillary services.
Energy volume activated for Marge: Specific balancing bids activated to reconstitute reserves.
Energy volume activated, injection point: Energy volume activated by PTS or PDS injection balancing entities
Energy volume activated, extraction point: Energy volume activated by remotely-read and profiled consumption balancing entities
Energy volume activated, exchange point: Energy volume activated by exchange point balancing entities
Energy volume activated, Inter-TSO Balancing Exchange: Energy volume exchanged between TSOs under balancing energy exchange contracts
Minimal price : Lowest price of balancing energy bids activated downward for P=C balance.
Maximal price : Highest price of balancing energy bids activated upward for P=C balance.
DMO’s offer : Mobilisation lead time of the bid.
DOmin’s offer : Minimum duration of use of the bid.
Ceiling/floor price: Price limit associated with the P=C balancing need requested by RTE to the TERRE platform and which can take the "at any cost” value.
Clearing price in France: marginal price defined, for the French scheduling area, by the TERRE platform.
Volume of activated RR standard bids: Aggregated volume of Replacement Reserve (RR) standard bids submitted by a French balancing service provider, shared by RTE to the TERRE platform and activated by the platform to meet RTE’s need or a foreign need.
Volume of RR Standard product bids submitted: Aggregated volume of Replacement Reserve (RR) standard bids submitted by a French balancing service provider and shared by RTE to the TERRE platform.
Restricted volume of RR standard bids: Volume of Replacement Reserve (RR) standard bids submitted by a French balancing service provider and made unavailable by RTE.
aFRR need requested by RTE : Average value of the French scheduling area control error at 4 second intervals before correction from the IGCC and PICASSO platforms.
aFRR activated for French scheduling area : Average value of aFRR activated at 4 second intervals in France or abroad to cover French aFRR demand.
Volume weighted average price of aFRR activated for French scheduling area : Average of the aFRR activation prices to cover French aFRR demand, calculated based on the Cross-Border Marginal Price (when connected to PICASSO) or the Local Marginal Price (in Merit Order France) at 4 second intervals, and weighted by the volume of aFRR activated for France.
aFRR submitted volume in France : Aggregated aFRR energy bids submitted in France.
aFRR activated volume in France : Average value of the aFRR activated in France at 4 second intervals, regardless of the beneficiary TSO.
aFRR unavailable volume in France : Not Applicable (the concept of unavailable bid does not exist for French aFRR).
Volume weighted average price of aFRR submitted bids in France : Average price of aFRR bids submitted in France, weighted by the submitted volumes.
