Elia has introduced interconnection capacity allocation mechanisms for transnational energy exchanges. These mechanisms satisfy market demand in a transparent and non-discriminatory manner. Long-term (yearly, quarterly, monthly and weekly) capacity is calculated using an NTC-based method.
The net transfer capacity (NTC) is the forecast transfer capacity agreed by Elia and its neighbouring transmission system operators (TSOs) for imports and exports across Belgium’s borders. The values listed in the table above are calculated on the basis of the best forecasts from the previous week.
Peak valuesPeak values are reached during peak time, i.e. when consumption is at its highest. Peak time is between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m.
Unavailable or low valuesValues are either unavailable or too low to be included in the table.
