The electricity market operators plan their consumption and production in advance but in reality, there is a deviation within each hour. Balancing market ensures that electricity production equals to consumption at all times. The deviation between production and consumption can be observed from the frequency of the electricity grid.

Transmission system operators encourage the operation on the frequency containment reserve market by direct income for example.
