Import/export balance

Presentation

To provide a summary of the information published daily concerning the use of interconnections, RTE is publishing figures for the total volume of exports from France and imports into France.

The daily import/export report reflects the situation as it is known each day at the end of the afternoon, for the following day. All known and nominated transactions at this point to and from England, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain will be taken into account to establish a complete overview.

The annual import/export report takes account of all transactions, irrespective of when they become known or are nominated. It includes certain transactions which are not included in the daily import/export report, such as intraday exchanges, exchanges conducted under the Balancing Mechanism or mutual backup contracts, as well as corrections made on an a posteriori basis.
