Changes to key volumes calculation and presentation
Nord Pool has changed the calculation in which we publish key market trading volumes, as of 1 January 2020.
This has been done to accommodate the situation where several power exchanges operate in one market area, so that we can continue to provide a transparent and accurate volume overview.
We will now present the following monthly trading volumes for both our day-ahead and intraday trading across all markets:
- Buy volume per bidding zone: total volume bought per hour by market participants.
- Sale volume per bidding zone: total volume sold per hour by market participants.
For Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania total volume shown will now include volumes bought or sold for export or import towards Russia, Kaliningrad and Belarus on specific portfolios or export/import areas established for the purpose of implicit handling of transmission capacity.
