Nord Pool Spot is pleased to announce that we will launch Elbas 4, a brand new intraday system, in October this year.
Based on members’ feedback and using the latest technology Elbas 4 will enable trade across multiple markets, combining great customisation options, superb functionality, simplicity and speed.
Important Reminder – Update to Java 8
In preparation for Elbas 4 go-live, all members need to ensure that they have Java Runtime Environment 8 (or any later versions), installed on any computer using Elbas. Please note that the current Elbas system will work with Java 8 as well.
Java Runtime Environment 8 can be downloaded and installed here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html.
If any member IT departments have questions about this upgrade, please contact the Elbas trading desk, +47 67 10 91 15.
There are no additional configurations needed to run Elbas 4 from the member's side.
Elbas 4 member testing
All Elbas members will be able to access Elbas 4 from Tuesday 26 August for testing. The test period will last until Friday 26 September.
Nord Pool Spot particularly invites all members to participate in our joint test session that will be held on Tuesday 9 September from 13.00 to 14.00 (CET). During this session, members will be able to verify access to the new test environment, and join us in trying out new functionality and fully appreciate the speed of the new system while ‘live’ trading in our test environment. Members will receive more detailed information.
