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 thus positions itself as a globally active platform for commodity products in the long term. Alongside EEX, EPEX SPOT, Powernext, Cleartrade Exchange (CLTX), Gaspoint Nordic, Power Exchange Central Europe (PXE) and Nodal Exchange are also part of EEX Group. Clearing and settlement of trading transactions are provided by the clearing house European Commodity Clearing (ECC) and in the United States Nodal Clear. EEX is part of Deutsche Börse Group.
