Dear Market Participant,

The Balancing Market Principles Statement aims to set out in a clear and comprehensible manner how the statutory obligations that govern the scheduling and dispatch process are fulfilled.

EirGrid and SONI have today published for consultation proposed revisions to the Balancing Market Principles Statement. The proposed revisions are presented for consultation in accordance with Transmission System Operator Licence obligations (Condition 22B of SONI’s and Condition 10B of EirGrid’s TSO licences) and SEM Committee decision SEM-16-058 ‘Balancing Market Principles Statement Terms of Reference’.

Two documents are provided for this consultation:

1.     Consultation Cover Note including a summary of revisions and guidance on the consultation process.

2.     Redline Version 2.1 of the Balancing Market Principles Statement, showing all proposed revisions to the current Version 2.0.  


Respondents should focus their feedback on the proposed revisions only.

Responses to this consultation should be sent to or before 5pm on Thursday 7 February.

Queries on the consultation or the BMPS should be directed to the same addresses. Thank you. 

Kind regards,

SEMO Team on behalf of the System Operator
