Elia records and checks the exchanges of energy on its grid every quarter of an hour. They are measured by meters that are installed and managed by Elia.

Metering services

Elia's high-voltage grid is fitted with metering devices that are used to record and check data about energy flows at our grid connections and interconnections, enabling Elia to ensure the technical and economic management of the transmission of energy. The energy measurements comply with Belgian legislation and are taken at 15-minute intervals.

Elia has proven experience in meter management, the provision of metering and measurement data, and data aggregation and communication.

Elia also uses the metering data it gathers and processes to provide a range of metering services, which fall into two categories: standard metering services and additional metering services. Which metering services does Elia offer? How can I access the metering data that are sent out as messages?
