List of ARPs
Elia keeps a list of all ARPs (Access Responsible Parties) or balance responsible parties.
The ARP contract sets out the balance-related rights and obligations of Elia and the ARP. Elia must ensure that balance is maintained in the control area, whilst the ARP is responsible for maintaining quarter-hourly balance between total injections and total off-takes.
A balance responsible party must be appointed for each access point on the grid. Either the supplier plays that role or the supplier appoints an ARP (Access Responsible Party) which already has a contract with Elia to act on its behalf.
You’ll find the list of the balance responsible parties for each access point on the grid in this document:
