About EPEX SPOT
The European Power Exchange EPEX SPOT SE and its affiliates operate physical short-term electricity markets in Central Western Europe and the United Kingdom. As part of EEX Group, a group of companies serving international commodity markets, EPEX SPOT is committed to the creation of a pan-European power market. In 2018, its 289 members traded 567 TWh – a third of the domestic consumption in the eight countries covered. 49% of its equity is held by HGRT, a holding of transmission system operators.
Power Spot Market
The power spot market for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland is operated by EPEX SPOT. Power products which are settled on the same day (Intraday) or on the following day (Day-ahead) can be traded. The offer is supplemented by Trade Registration services.
In order to trade on EEX Group markets, companies need to complete the admission process at the respective market place. Proper settlement and collateralisation of transactions require the recognition as a trading participant by the respective clearing house – ECC for Europe and Nodal Clear for US markets.
EEX Group provides multiple connectivity options to access its markets via a number of “front-ends”. Each access type is designed for simplicity and compatibility with the Trayport systems or in-house solutions. Depending on the individual requirements, customers can select the right solution from various front-end alternatives. Connection is possible via VPN, internet or leased line according to your individual requirements.
