Information on the intended merger of Powernext into EEX

The European Energy Exchange AG (EEX) intends to merge Powernext activities into EEX in January 2020, subject to the required approvals. Through the integration of Powernext into EEX, the exchange will offer all products at one single market place while simplifying the admissions of new participants. Members will be able to easily trade a larger EEX portfolio including natural gas, power and emission allowances.

The integration will make the gas markets accessible to global customers of the EEX Group while – via the Paris office – allowing EEX to keep its decentralized and local connection to members. State-of-the-art trading technology, stable processes and customer support in German, English and French languages will remain unchanged. More Information can be found in the EEX and Powernext Press Release.

Neither the provision of the natural gas market data nor your subscription will be affected by this integration. EEX Group DataSource already includes market data of all Powernext markets and will be provided to customers as usual.
