On January 1st 2020, the European Energy Exchange (EEX) merged Powernext activities into EEX. Through this integration, EEX offers power derivatives and gas markets under one exchange license and allows its member to trade natural gas contracts in the Austrian, Belgian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and UK market areas. The natural gas product range covers spot and futures and options contracts for the major European gas hubs as well as trading in location spread products between these market areas. EEX also offers JKM® LNG Futures settled against the S&P Platts JKM® assessment, today’s most reliable price estimation for the Asian region.

Powernext integration into EEX:
Power derivatives and gas markets under one roof
The European Energy Exchange (EEX) has successfully integrated Powernext and Gaspoint Nordic as of 1 January 2020. All required approvals have been received to integrate the natural gas spot and derivatives markets into EEX. The integration also includes registry services, which will now be operated by EEX, apart from the exchange activities.
As a result, customers gain access to increased trading opportunities and a growing liquidity pool, while continuing to benefit from cross margining effects as ECC remains the central counterparty for clearing transactions. At the same time, current Powernext clients are now able to continue trading the natural gas portfolio upon admittance to EEX. Powernext is incorporated into EEX, becoming a Paris based center of expertise, maintaining all stakeholder relations and know-how for natural gas markets and registry services.
This constitutes a significant milestone for the development of the Global Commodity Exchange group with a strong European footprint.
