Daily Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) Cost Data

Balancing Costs

The BSUoS charge recovers the cost of day-to-day operation of the transmission system. Generators and suppliers are liable for these charges, which are calculated daily as a flat tariff for all users. Historical values of these charges, on a daily basis in a annual file, are provided here.

Please Note: Due to a technical issue with the data, there is currently a delay in the publication of the Daily Balancing Costs data. We are working hard to resolve the issue and reports will be issued in due course as the data becomes available. Please be advised that there could also be certain dates missing. As the data becomes available the missing dates will be added to the relevant file.
