The European Energy Exchange (EEX) with registered office in Leipzig was established in 2002 as a result of the merger of the German power exchanges in Frankfurt and Leipzig. Since then it has evolved from a local power exchange into a leading energy trading platform in Europe. At EEX, contracts for Power, Coal and Emission Allowances as well as Freight and Agricultural Products are traded or registered for clearing.

Today, EEX is part of a group of companies (EEX Group) that establishes international partnerships and plays a decisive role in European energy trading. In addition to EEX, EPEX SPOT, Powernext, Cleartrade Exchange (CLTX) and Gaspoint Nordic are also part of EEX Group. Clearing and settlement of all trading transactions are provided by the clearing house European Commodity Clearing (ECC). EEX is a member of Eurex Group.
