The average power price is based on the entire day, but the limit prices apply only to the corresponding time slice.
The average power price is calculated as the sum of the separately calculated weighted average power prices for each time slice for the accepted bids.

Please note: The costs and revenues from balancing group accounting are derived from the provisional balancing group account produced 42 business days after the end of a given month. The final costs and revenues are derived from the second, and thereby final, balancing group account (eight months after the end of a given month) and are considered accordingly in the reported figures.

* These data are of a provisional nature and are subject to changes in the final bill.
** The calculation rule for the balance is: (4) = (1) + (2) - (3)
