London / Paris

The European Power Exchange EPEX SPOT has successfully transferred all Day-ahead trading of the GB market from the Eurolight trading system to the EPEX Trading System (ETS) on 10 April 2018.

“This trading migration initiates the last major milestone in the unification of our power trading systems across all EPEX SPOT markets. Day-ahead trading in Great Britain now takes place on ETS, our robust and reliable trading solution already implemented on our other five Central-Western European Day-ahead markets” says Jonas Törnquist, Chief Operating Officer of EPEX SPOT. “From now on all EPEX SPOT Day-ahead markets are available through on single trading screen, bringing additional benefits notably in terms of reporting and back office processes for our members” he adds.

This trading migration is one in a sequence of measures taken by EPEX SPOT to facilitate spot trading for market participants in Europe, after the merger of EPEX SPOT with former APX Group. Clearing for the Dutch, Belgian and GB markets were already transferred to European Commodity Clearing ECC, the single clearing house of all EPEX SPOT markets, in March 2016. The Dutch and Belgian Intraday markets were migrated to the M7 system, used on all EPEX SPOT Intraday markets, in October 2016, and the transfer of Belgian and Dutch Day-ahead trading to ETS followed in Early 2017. The GB Intraday market will be transferred from Eurolight to M7 later this year.
