Net Transfer Capacity (NTC)

The Net Transfer Capacity (NTC) is the transfer capacity forecast agreed between Elia and its neighbouring transmission system operators (TSOs) for imports and exports across Belgium’s borders. The values listed in the table above are calculated on the basis of the best forecasts from the previous week.

Visit Transmission capacity at borders for more information on the calculation method.

Peak values (*)

Peak values are reached during peak time, i.e. when consumption is at its highest. Peak time is between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

Unavailable or low values

Values marked with (**) are either unavailable or too low to be included in the table.

Capacity Calculation methodologies differ between time horizons

The long term (Year, Month & Week) capacity calculation is based on an NTC methodology while the daily capacity calculation process is based on the Flow-Based methodology. Forecast capacity for import and export in Elia’s control area will be influenced from both time horizons and methodologies.

More information on the calculation methods is available here “methodology”.
