EPEX SPOT price data incorporated on EEX Transparency Platform

As of 3 September 2015, EEX Transparency Platform displays day-ahead and intraday prices for the Austrian, Germany and Swiss markets operated by EPEX SPOT. This should contribute to better public understanding of the interdependencies of market prices, expected and actual in-feed of wind and solar power and the planned and actual production of conventional power plants.

The day-ahead auction for Switzerland closes daily at 11 am (CET/CEST) and for the joint market area of Germany/Austria at 12 pm. Although the price determination will immediately started after that gate closure and the results are published in accordance to the auction rules at EPEX SPOT’s website, the publication at the EEX Transparency Platform will be done simultaneously with the disclosure of the forecasted in-feed of wind and solar energy and the planned power production at 6 pm daily. This follows the fact that the day-ahead auction prices together with the forecasted in-feed of renewables are main drivers for the planned power production of individual conventional generating units.

The intraday prices are taken from the weighted average figures calculated for the continuous trading in frequent intervals by EPEX SPOT and published on its website. The figures shown on the EEX Transparency Platform include the hourly contracts only, and are disclosed one hour after the passed operational hour. This follows the fact that, again, intraday prices together with the actual in-feed of renewables impact the actual power production of individual conventional generating units.
