Imbalance energy

The difference between hourly scheduled electricity deliveries and hourly metered deliveries. Typically, energy imbalances are eliminated during a future period by returning energy in kind under conditions similar to those when the initial energy was delivered. When energy imbalances exceed a prespecified threshold (for example, +/–1.5% of the scheduled transaction), imbalances are resolved through monetary payments.
