Monthly Balancing Services summary (MBSS)

The MBSS gives the costs and volumes of balancing services used by the ESO.
These costs are broken into individual months in the past financial year, as well as by each individual service. The most recent month is based on preliminary figures, which are subject to change once updated information becomes available. These changes will be evident in the datasets of future months. Alongside the data files are the PDF reports of the data, giving some extra insight and analysis.

Note: we have withdrawn the monthly Balancing Services summary 2022/23 report for March 2023, due to some data errors. It will be available on the portal once the issue is resolved. Apologies for any inconvenience.
