How are ETLMO values used?

The Balancing Mechanism Reporting Agent (BMRA) uses ETLMO values to calculate indicative charges and payments for Balancing Mechanism (BM) actions, and the Energy Imbalance Price, in near to real-time.

ETLMO values are used to report indicative data on the Balancing Mechanism Reporting Services (BMRS), and will be published within the Operational Data section of the Elexon Portal.

ETLMO values have been calculated for each season across the 2021/22 BSC Year, following the implementation of Approved BSC Modification P350 ‘Introduction of a seasonal Zonal Transmission Losses scheme’ on 1 April 2018.
