Customer information on Brexit
From 1 January 2021 the UK will leave the European Internal Energy Market (IEM). As a result the GB day-ahead market and order books will no longer be coupled externally with the rest of Europe, nor internally within GB.
New gate closure time - 09.50 GMT
From 31 December 2020 Nord Pool's day-ahead auction has a new gate closure time of 09:50 GMT with results available no later than 10:00 GMT.
In the island of Ireland the SEM-GB intraday auctions (IDA1 & IDA2) continue to operate with shared order books between power exchanges, offering implicit capacity between the island of Ireland and GB.
Explicit capacity auctions will be staggered throughout the morning, starting with the BritNed interconnector, followed by IFA, IFA2 and finally Nemo Link.
