Margins represent a volume of capacity available for RTE to be used to cope with generation or consumption contingency consequences. They are thus one of the essential components of system control under safe operating conditions.

RTE proposes on this web page :

  • To display the available upward capacities on the margin range without imbalance, as well as the forecasted imbalance on the demand peak
  • To display the available upward capacities on the margin range if Balancing Responsible Parties take no action before the market closure for the demand peak

RTE displays in the web page, one version of the margins calculated in D-1 and 3 versions of the actualized intraday margins based on the best hypothesis at our disposal for the morning and/or evening peak. An historic of these values can also be downloaded in this web page.

The shape of the consumption curve evolves during the year: in summer there is no consumption peak in the evening, the related margin is therefore no longer calculated.
