Nord Pool, Europe’s leading power market, has successfully launched a new intraday auction for the German market.
The company’s intraday auctions concept has attracted strong support, with more than 50 market participants already signed up. The first auctions, executed at 22 CEST on 10 April and 10 CEST on 11 April for delivery on 11 April saw trades being successfully completed.
The intraday auction at 22 CEST covers hourly products from 00 - 24 the following day, while the 10 CEST auction covers the remaining 12 hours in the same day, from 12 – 24.
Erling Thiis, Acting CEO at Nord Pool, said: “Nord Pool has developed the new intraday auction in response to customer demand. It also provides a regional blueprint for the ENTSO-E proposal on intraday auctions.
“The new auctions are a means for the power market to effectively trade the increasing amounts of renewable power production which are becoming available, to get a price signal complementary to the continuous market and also for industry and households to become more flexible in their consumption.”
