Rectification following false news reports

Power outage not the cause of the partial Decoupling on 25 June 2024

Amsterdam / Berlin / Bern / Brussels / London / Paris / Vienna, 1 July 2024.

Following the Decoupling of EPEX SPOT from the Single Day-Ahead Coupling (SDAC) on 25 June 2024 (trading day), several media outlets have published articles claiming a power outage was the cause of this incident.

These reports are false.

They are based on a member communication sent on an incident over a decade ago and stored in the Archive of our EPEX SPOT Newsroom (year 2011).

As previously announced, a technical issue with the trading system lead to the partial Decoupling. Information on this market incident is stored and accessible in the 2024 section of the EPEX SPOT Newsroom.
