    Key achievements

    Power

    • The power spot market increased by 15% to 53.7 TWh. This was largely driven by the solid performance on the Intraday market which grew by 44% compared to 2019.
    • The rise in the European power derivatives markets was mainly due to the excellent performance in French (+50%) and Spanish Futures (+21%) as well as Hungary (+123%) which continues to establish itself as the new liquidity hub in the CEE region. Furthermore, with 410 GWh traded in February, EEX achieved a new monthly record in GB Futures


    Natural Gas

    • The gas spot segment reported a total monthly volume of 121.2 TWh with the TTF achieving its second best ever monthly volume with 56.2 TWh traded.
    • Volumes of 109.7 TWh were traded on the gas derivatives segment which increased by 78% compared to February 2019. This was mainly driven by the performance of the CEGH and TTF hubs, which reported 8.3 TWh (+125% y-o-y) and 91.4 TWh (+ 91% y-o-y) respectively


    Environmentals

    • In February 2020, the European Environmental products reported double-digit growth (+16%) with 106 million tonnes of CO2 traded throughout the month.


    Freight

    • The freight segment continued into 2020 with another record breaking performance, registering a total of 49,839 lots throughout the month. This represents almost 10 times the volume of contracts registered in February 2019 (5,100 contracts).
