Nord Pool, Europe’s leading power market, is pleased to announce that from today, 14 January, all Nord Pool members active in intraday trading in the Finnish price area can trade right up to each delivery hour.
This change follows the mid 2019 announcement by the Finnish TSO, Fingrid, that it would be enabling intraday markets to operate locally until the start of delivery hour.
Vassi Kujala, our Market Manager Finland, said: “Extending gate closure time to zero minutes in Finland is an important step in the development of the real time continuous market, providing participants with better tools with which to adjust their balances as close as possible to delivery.”
The change is initially being undertaken as a six-month pilot project, during which the TSO will evaluate how the extended trading supports balance management in the Finnish power system.
Nord Pool would like to thank all market participants that have supported this initiative.
