EPEX SPOT and Swissgrid reduce the leadtime from 30min to 5min on Swiss Intraday Continuous contracts

Bern / Paris, 15 February 2024. EPEX SPOT, in a joint initiative with Swissgrid, reduced the lead-time of Intraday continuous trading in Switzerland to 5 minutes before delivery. On 13 February 2024, the former 30-minute lead-time was reduced effectively on all 15-, 30- and 60-minutes granularities – allowing further trading closer to real time. All other specifications of Intraday continuous contracts in Switzerland remain the same. This is one of EPEX SPOT and Swissgrid's first steps to enable market participants to reduce imbalances due to renewable production such as solar. The overall goal of this initiative is to make the Intraday market in Switzerland more attractive and to reduce the number of necessary adjustment in case of a potential electricity agreement between Switzerland and the European Union.

All market participants registered at EPEX SPOT on the M7 Continuous Intraday markets in Switzerland will automatically have access to these new trading lead-times.
