Status activation

Elia publishes information on economic and/or technical triggers including the status of activation of strategic reserve

This page shows the real-time activation status for strategic reserves, both day-ahead and intraday. If a day-ahead economic or technical trigger is detected, it will be displayed at the bottom of this page. If an intraday economic and/or technical trigger has been detected, it will be displayed in orange in the top left.


  • Status activation color

    The SR activation status is indicated to the right of the SR trigger. The current activation status is shown in orange. For example, if the "Economic trigger" box and the "Verification" box are in orange, it means that an activation of strategic reserve has taken place. The activation status can be found in the Verification gate following detection of the economic trigger, but not yet in the Delivery period.
