Spinning Reserve (Margin_Peak and Margin_Off Peak)

The values for the Margin_Peak and Margin_Off-Peak parameters are used in the Ancillary Service settlement calculations for the compensation of costs incurred by Synergy, as the sole default provider of the Spinning Reserve Ancillary Service. The ERA must determine the values for the Margin_Peak and Margin_Off-Peak parameters by 31 March for each financial year.
