Power trading is becoming increasingly automated. As a Power Exchange we support our clients in their automation processes and provide performant systems that allow for high levels of market activity.
EPEX SPOT offers top-notch technology solutions that allow you to customize and optimize your trading experience.
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a communication channel which can be used by market participants to send and receive specially formatted and standardized messages to and from our trading systems. They are available for the M7 trading system, used for continuous trading, and for ETS, used for auction trading. APIs are an interface against which market participants can program a software, they are not a ready-to-use application.
You can find all technical information related to APIs in the download section. The list of Independent Software Vendors developing software solutions with an interface to the EPEX SPOT trading systems is available here.
In case your company disposes of a leased line infrastructure, you can use them to access M7 and ComTrader. The dedicated connection details for the different environments are accessible here.
EPEX SPOT also offers the possibility to access trading systems via a virtual private network (VPN). You can find the technical specifications in the download section.
