Imbalance settlement structures are the core of the settlement system and therefore it is crucial to have them correctly established. Market Participants' cooperation in the process is highly valued.

Imbalance settlement structures

On this page eSett shares a list of all Balance Responsible Parties, sorted alphabetically by Country of origin and Name, that eSett sees currently as active in the Nordic market. Along with these, eSett also publishes two status symbols; one representing the current state of BPR’s structures and another representing their ability to communicate with eSett’s imbalance settlement system.

The presented status symbols are based upon market participants’ own announcements. By default each status will be incomplete and marked as Need verification, until the market participants have confirmed eSett that the structures have been verified as correct and the connectivity established. The status lists will be updated on a weekly basis.
