Public consultation on input data for determining the volume of strategic reserves for the winter 2017-2018


In the framework of the volume determination for the strategic reserves, Elia organized a public consultation in June 2016 on the methodology, the different assumptions and data sources that will be used to determine the volume of strategic reserves for the winter 2017-2018.

As indicated at that time, an additional consultation on the raw input data used for the calculation of the volume of strategic reserves will be organized in September.

The consultation aims to receive any comments of market participants on these raw data. The consultation period is set from Monday 19 September until Monday 3 October 2016, 6:00pm.
The consulted document is an excel file with all input data. An explanation of the assumptions on which the next volume evaluation for the strategic reserves will be based for winter 2017-2018, is given in a separate document (presentation).

The reactions can be communicated to Elia until Monday 3 October 2016, 18:00, at the following email address: It is important to know that all remarks will be published at the end of the consultation unless the respondent requests confidentiality in its response.

Elia will publish a summary of the received reactions in a consultation report in order to inform market parties on all received reactions and to give its replies to these reactions. This will also be presented in the Task Force "Implementation Strategic Reserves".
