Schedule management describes the process of settling energy supplies
between balancing groups based on ¼-hour energy schedules. By no later
than 2:30 p.m. each day, the balancing group manager provides the
transmission system operator with binding notice of the intended energy
supplies for the following day.
The goal of schedule management is to achieve a consistent balance within the balancing group to ensure the volume of energy fed in matches the volume consumed at the same time.
