Spot power market arrangements under Brexit

« back to overview


The Brexit negotiations are approaching their end, and a no deal is currently still a possible outcome. What does this mean for EPEX SPOT GB market?

In case of a no deal Brexit, the 12:00 Day-Ahead power markets of Great Britain will be fully decoupled from Continental Europe and from Ireland. EPEX SPOT is fully prepared for this : technically, operationally and contractually.

EPEX SPOT already runs every day a local Day-Ahead GB Auction at 15:30, as well as an extra-EU Day-Ahead auction in Switzerland. EPEX SPOT is therefore fully equipped to operate the Day-Ahead 12:00 GB market, under the current pan-European procedures, or autonomously in Great Britain in case of a no deal Brexit.
We are also confident of running a robust, intrinsically liquid 12:00 Day-Ahead auction in GB, providing the most reliable reference price due to the high number of diverse members that participate in it every day.

EPEX SPOT is committed to ensure a transition that is as smooth as possible for our trading members in GB, under all political circumstances.
