Commenting On Price Cap Plans
With the European Commission having called an Extraordinary Energy Council meeting, Nord Pool has concerns around the Commission’s proposal to establish a price cap for inframarginal technologies in coupled electricity markets.
While it is reassuring that the Commission ruled out disruptive measures such as full market suspension, we feel well placed to warn that a poorly designed inframarginal cap could unfairly penalise generators which have already entered forward hedging / PPA / OTC contracts.
Emma and Pietro Lead Our Markets
Nord Pool is delighted to announce the appointment of Emma McKiernan and Pietro Rabassi to the roles of Executive Vice Presidents for the Nordic, Baltic and UK regions and for the rest of Europe, respectively.
Emma and Pietro will be responsible for defining and delivering the best strategies in their regions of responsibility, to benefit our members and other stakeholders.
The duo take over the responsibilities of our former Director Markets, Marianne Wergeland Jenssen, who, sadly, will soon leave us to seek new challenges. We wish Marianne all the very best in her endeavours.
What stays unchanged is our dedicated focus on delivering the highest quality products and services for all our customers, regardless of their size or where they trade.
If you would like to discuss your requirements with Emma or Pietro, they can be contacted here.
Max Price Stays at €4000
Customers may already be aware that earlier this month the Market Coupling Steering Committee sent a letter to the European Commission and the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators, seeking guidance on whether there was a need to freeze the proposed increase of the Single Day-Ahead Coupling maximum price, due to the current exceptional energy market situation.
Nord Pool has been active in this process and strongly favoured having further guidance on how the Harmonised Maximum and Minimum Clearing Price methodology should be used in these challenging times.
A decision has now been made that the planned maximum price increase from 4000€ to 5000€ will not now take place. You can read more here.
