Meet the technical requirements forthe participation in the balancing energy market
FlexPowerHub provides you with a simple and efficient solution for the automated calculation and submission of revenue-optimized bids.

For the marketing of balancing energy, technical qualifications are required depending on the respective transmission system operator and may therefore vary.
- Technical prequalification
2. the framework contract
A balance group is a grouping of generators, suppliers, traders and customers into a virtual group. The aim is to keep the balance between the production (generation, purchase) and delivery (consumption, supply) of energy in balance every quarter of an hour.
The difference between the generation and delivery of this energy is called balancing energy. The balance responsible party (BGV) is responsible for the balance group. He/she represents them vis-à-vis other market participants and is liable for the balancing energy incurred.
BGV is a natural or legal person. Every market participant is obliged to join a balance group or to form one himself. The BGV thus supplies or obtains the energy from the respective balance group.
Balance groups can only be formed within a control area. It is not relevant in which network area or on which network level the members of a balance group are physically connected. Suppliers and some large end customers have a direct contractual relationship with BGV and are therefore referred to as direct balancing group members or balancing group members. Indirect members, on the other hand, are end customers who, through a supply contract with their supplier, belong to a balance group.
If your plants meet all the requirements for the marketing of balancing energy, there is nothing standing in the way of your own marketing. And this is where FlexPowerHub comes in… Our service covers the entire trading process on the balancing energy market.
