Equal treatment Trading on EEX is anonymous. Thus, all trading participants are given equal treatment. A set of binding rules and regulations is mandatory for all trading participants.
Transparency Through the publication of recognised reference prices and all trading results EEX makes energy markets transparent and understandable for all those involved, including the general public. Moreover, the “Transparency in Energy Markets” platform for fundamental electricity data operated by EEX is setting standards in Europe.
Regulated market platform As an exchange under public law, one of its central aims is to safeguard a fair trading and pricing process in line with the rules of the exchange. On EEX, the Market Surveillance (HÜSt) – an independent and autonomous body of the exchange pursuant to the German Exchange Act – assumes this task.
Security through clearing The counterparty risk of all of the transactions concluded on the exchange is assumed by European Commodity Clearing AG (ECC). ECC ensures the safe and efficient settlement of the transactions for the trading participants. Moreover, OTC transactions can be registered on the exchange for clearing via ECC.
