Futures contracts are bilateral contracts negotiated between NGESO and counterparties. The bilateral market is of great importance to NGESO. Our business requirements are often not met by standard products, usually because we want to act for a particular site or achieve a certain level of production/demand or flow in the network. As a result, we will often contact counterparties directly to negotiate defined parameters. These bipedal transactions can take place either with interconnections or specific counterparties to the BMU. The Grid Trade Master Agreement (GTMA) is an agreement on electricity exchanges in the UK.  Complete our quick survey below to make commitments on what we should give. Part of this particular new licensing requirement is the “commercial agreement application,” which defines the process of negotiating trade agreements with licensed suppliers (known as the Grid Trade Master Agreement (GTMA). For more information, including a list of eligible suppliers, visit the Ofgem: Forward Trading website on bilateral agreements (usually one day before an hour in advance).
It is generally used either when a plant has excess electricity that it wants to “sell” to the electricity grid, or when the power company wants to buy excess electricity to meet demand, or if it reduces supply. The majority of energy exchanges are done in advance between suppliers and generators. This is then refined closer to real time in the spot markets. Subsequently, NGESO will ensure that the supply meets demand by taking action under the clearing mechanism (WB). However, before the WB, NGESO also has the option of trading with parties. If restructuring is instead considered to be formal insolvency procedures (see practical note: benefits of restructuring as part of a formal procedure), the company can ensure that the creditors concerned quickly enter into a status quo agreement in order to receive some respite from the restructuring review. Although electricity is a non-tangible asset, these agreements are used to negotiate guarantees to provide electricity for a period of time.

Compensation contracts are agreements for services purchased to compensate and insure the system. For more information, see www.nationalgrideso.com/balancing-services THE GTMA was originally published in 2001 by the Association of Futures and Options (now included in the World Futures Industry Association (FIA), which was used after the launch of the Energy Trading Arrangements (NETA) (replaced in 2005 by UK electricity trading and transmission arrangements).
