About the BRP role

A balance responsible party, also referred to as a BRP, and is a company that can and may handle the balance responsibility for production and consumption units and/or trades physical power. Because this role gives access to both the day-ahead market, intraday market and the balancing market, a BRP can be active in both the electricity market and the balancing market.

The balance responsible party is financially responsible for imbalances and deviations between the planned and the actual production, consumption, and trade of power.

A balance responsible party can also, through agreement with Energinet, deliver ancillary services, if the technical and legal requirements are met.
