Procurement Basis of a Common Concept to Cover Grid Losses

Procurement basically ensues according to the following procedure:

  • Participating grid operators notify APG of grid loss forecasts up to 3 years in advance.
  • APG cumulates the quantities and allocates them – in order to minimise the price risk – to several tenders of standard products at different times (long-term procurement process).
  • Any remaining quantities are covered by APG on the daily spot market (short-term procurement process, no tenders).
