Nord Pool, Europe’s leading power market, has seen its first trades on its extended intraday market in Germany.
The extended intraday market trading in the German TSO areas was launched on Thursday 11th February, seeing trades with a total volume of 173.5 MWh on its first day. The new extended intraday trading allows orders to remain available in the Nord Pool Intraday market in the TSO area in which they have been entered after the TSO borders close, only expiring at the time of delivery.
Welcoming the first trades Hans Randen, Director of Central European Markets at Nord Pool, said: “We have been pleased to bring this new opportunity to our intraday customers, providing an alternative to OTC trading for achieving a balanced position after TSO borders close.
“We aim to simplify our customers’ lives and bring down their costs, by offering API and easy-to-use trading, with clearing and settlement undertaken by Nord Pool.”
