29.08.2017 German, Austrian, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian and Croatian TSOs and NEMOs formed a Local Implementation Project under XBID

Transmission System Operators and Nominated Electricity Market Operators representing Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Romania and Croatia established a Local Implementation Project to realize the coupling of intraday electricity markets based on the XBID technical solution.

In August 2017, Transmission System Operators and Nominated Electricity Market Operators of Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Romania, namely 50Hertz, APG, ČEPS, EPEX SPOT, EXAA, HUPX, MAVIR, Nord Pool, OPCOM, OTE, TenneT and Transelectrica signed a Memorandum of Understanding on establishing a Local Implementation Project of the Cross-Border Intraday solution (XBID) to couple intraday electricity markets. Later in August, Transmission System Operator and Nominated Electricity Market Operator of Croatia (HOPS, CROPEX) adhered to the Memorandum.

All project parties expressed their interest to implement continuous cross-border trading and to introduce implicit allocation of cross-border transmission intraday capacities on the Czech-German, Czech-Austrian, Austrian-Hungarian, Hungarian-Romanian and Hungarian-Croatian borders. The parties established a Local Implementation Project (namely LIP 15) aimed at fulfilling the requirements set by the EU-wide cross-border intraday XBID project.

All parties are committed to contribute actively to the completion of the European Internal Energy Market in line with Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management (CACM regulation). The LIP 15 parties endeavour to start operation as soon as possible after the successful go-live of the first wave LIPs, currently estimated by the XBID project for Q1 2018. Based on the initial project timeline, which will be further developed, the LIP 15 parties intend to go-live in Q4 2018 (second wave LIP).

The XBID project for pan-European Intraday Coupling is comprised of members from 14 European countries. The purpose of the XBID Market Project is to enable continuous cross-zonal trading and increase the overall efficiency of intraday trading on the single cross-zonal Intraday market across Europe. This single Intraday cross-zonal market solution will be based on a common IT system forming the backbone of the European solution, linking the local trading systems operated by the Nominated Electricity Market Operators, as well as the available cross-zonal transmission capacity provided by the TSOs. Orders entered by market participants in one country can be matched by orders similarly submitted by market participants in any other country within the IT systems’ reach, provided there is cross-zonal capacity available. Despite the XBID project being a complex project to implement, it continues to make substantive progress. The XBID solution is expected to be technically ready in Q4 2017, which will then be followed by the final go-live preparations (first wave of Local Implementation Projects).

24.07.2017 National Regulatory Authorities approve NEMO proposal to establish European Market Coupling Operator functions to further integrate day-ahead and intraday markets (the “MCO Plan”)

We are pleased to announce that, following extensive discussion and collaboration between Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) and National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs), all NRAs approved the MCO Plan on 26 June 2017. The MCO Plan includes all the necessary steps to accomplish a European market coupling operator function to integrate European day-ahead and intraday power markets.

In April 2016, the NEMO Committee, representing all 17 NEMOs from across Europe, submitted the MCO Plan to all National Regulatory Authorities for approval under Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management (the “CACM Regulation”).

The MCO Plan provides how NEMOs will jointly set up and perform the MCO functions according to the  CACM Regulation, necessary to connect day-ahead and intraday markets across the whole of Europe and provides clear and detailed rules and requirements that have been agreed upon among NEMOs. It will serve as the framework enabling the successful development and operation and of market coupling in all Member States in the years to come.

The approval of the MCO Plan represents a significant milestone in the implementation of the CACM Regulation and accomplishment of the Internal Energy Market. The NRAs ratification of the MCO Plan confirms:

  1. the adoption of Price Coupling of Regions (PCR) solution as the basis for pan-European single day-ahead coupling,
  2. the adoption of the Cross-Border Intraday (XBID) solution as the basis for pan-European single intraday coupling,
  3. the role of the NEMO Committee as the official body responsible to oversee the future establishment, development and operation of the MCO functions.

 

During the following months, the NEMO Committee will provide the necessary oversight to coordinate and report on progress to implement the MCO Plan and to successfully establish the MCO functions. In addition, all NEMOs are dedicated to fulfil further obligations under the CACM Regulation to:

  1. finalise and implement the additional methodologies required by the CACM Regulation, that NEMOs submitted to all NRAs for approval in February 2017,
  2. implement multi-NEMO arrangements, to support efficient and non-discriminatory operation where multiple NEMOs operate in the same bidding zone,
  3. deliver projects, together with TSOs and stakeholders, to implement day-ahead and intraday coupling on a European-wide basis.

 

On 12 July 2017, the NEMO Committee confirmed the appointment of Cosimo Campidoglio, current Head of Market Monitoring and Analysis at the Italian power exchange GME, as its new Chairperson. All NEMOs warmly thank the outgoing Chairperson, Andrew Claxton, for his significant contribution in establishing the NEMO Committee and fostering the wider cooperation among NEMOs.

The NEMO Committee oversees the efficient management of the cooperation between NEMOs aiming to achieve the objective of and delivering the requirements  set by the CACM Regulation. All NEMOs are part of the NEMO Committee.

Price Coupling of Regions (PCR) is the initiative of 7  European Power Exchanges (EPEX SPOT, GME, Nord Pool, OMIE, OPCOM, TGE and OTE), to develop a single price coupling solution to be used to calculate electricity prices across Europe, and allocate cross-border capacity on a day-ahead basis. This is crucial to achieve the overall EU target of a harmonised European electricity market. The integrated European electricity market is expected to increase liquidity, efficiency and social welfare.

Cross-border Intraday Market Project (XBID)  is a joint initiative by the Power Exchanges (PXs): EPEX SPOT, GME, Nord Pool and OMIE together with the Transmission System Operators (TSOs) from 11 countries, to create an integrated intraday cross-border market. The single intraday market will enable continuous cross-border trading across the entire Europe.

09.06.2016 “NEMO Committee” established to manage joint responsibilities of NEMOs under CACM: MCO Plan submitted to NRAs

Europe’s electricity spot exchanges that have been designated as NEMOs (Nominated Electricity Market Operators) have established the “NEMO Committee” to take forward their joint responsibility to further develop and operate the European single day-ahead and intraday market coupling - as required under the CACM Regulation (Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1222 of 24 July 2015 establishing a guideline on capacity allocation and congestion management).

03.08.2015 EXAA Energy Exchange Austria, headquartered in Vienna, continues to develop successfully!

After the previous month already being the most successful June in the history of EXAA, also last July showed a very high trading volumes with 713 098 MWh in total.

This was not only the second highest volume so far in 2015 but even the second strongest July since the start of trading at EXAA back in 2002.

This is not least because of the successfully launched EXAA quarter-hour trading in 2014 and thereby newly won 12 trading participants.

Quarter-hour trading has established itself as an important tool in balance group management and generates up to a quarter of EXAAs’ daily turnover.

08.07.2015 Month June

Last June brought several joyous events for EXAA like the most successful June in its history!
Summer started with an unprecedented overall volume of 697.529,35 MWh, traded by our 79 participants!

We also give a warm welcome to our new member, Quadra Energy GmbH from Düsseldorf, Germany!

The steady increase in members from all over Europe underlines the importance of the Energy Exchange from Vienna, which provides the first official price indication for the German/Austrian market area by its 10:15 auction.

EXAA is also leading in the implementation of future regulatory requirements. As one of the first energy exchanges, EXAA has sent the obligatory data reporting agreement for REMIT reporting to its participants.

17.06.2015 New trading participant

With June 17th 2015, Quadra Energy GmbH from Düsseldorf has been admitted to trading as a new member of EXAA.

24.02.2015 ITALIAN BORDERS SUCCESSFULLY COUPLED

The Italian Borders Market Coupling was successfully launched today. The Italian-Austrian, Italian-French and Italian-Slovenian borders have been coupled with the Multi-Regional Coupling (MRC), thus linking the majority of EU power markets–from Finland to Portugal and Slovenia.The launch of the Italian Borders Market Coupling provides evidence of the flexibility and reliability of the Price Coupling of Regions (PCR) solution.

Today for the first time, capacity for the Italian-Austrian, Italian-French and Italian-Slovenian borders has been implicitly allocated through the PCR solution for the Day-Ahead markets, making those borders part of the MRC. This full price coupling allows the simultaneous calculation of electricity prices and cross-border flows across the region. This will bring a benefit for end-consumers derived from a more efficient use of the power system and cross-border infrastructures as a consequence of a stronger coordination between energy markets.

With this achievement, cross-border capacity of all interconnectors within and between the following countries is now allocated in the day-ahead timeframe: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland (via the SwePol Link), Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

The Day-Ahead markets of MRC extended to the Italian Borders Market Coupling now cover 19 European countries, accounting for about 2,800 TWh of yearly consumption. The daily average cleared volume over these countries amounts to over 4 TWh, with an average daily value of over €150m.

Information regarding the Italian-Swiss border
Though all Swiss borders are technically ready for market coupling, their coupling is delayed in the course of ongoing bilateral negotiations between Switzerland and the EU Commission. The partners remain ready to go live within a short timeframe, as soon as the present political situation evolves.

Information regarding Italian-Greek border
The Italian-Greek border will be technically ready for market coupling at a later date. The Go-Live date of the Italian-Greek border will be decided as soon as its technical readiness to enter has been assessed within the Italian Borders Market Coupling project.

13.08.2009 - Austrian Energy Exchange EXAA defies the crisis

Vienna August 3rd, 2009: While many other markets places complain about serious decrease in turnover, the traded volume at the Austrian Energy Exchange EXAA is steadily rising. More than 2.1 TWh of electricity (about 6% of the overall Austrian consumption) were traded in the first half of 2009. “In comparison to the 1.1 TWh in the first 6 months of 2008 this represents nearly a doubling of the electricity trade on our platform”, confirms Jürgen Wahl, the Commercial Director of EXAA.

Furthermore, since the beginning of 2009, five new companies participated in electricity trading at the EXAA: Energie Baden Würtemberg Trading GmbH (GER), Braunschweiger Versorgungs AG &amp; CoKG (GER), Becomac GmbH (GER), Shell Energy Trading Ltd (UK) and Bergen Energi AS (NOR). Together with two other companies, Derex France (FRA) and Cemcor Energy Deutschland GmbH (GER), that have joined the Emissions Trading at EXAA , the number of participants at EXAA has grown up to 83 market participants from 16 different countries.

With the participation of the Norwegian Bergen Energy AS EXAA has gained its first broker. Bergen was established in Norway in 1991 as the first independent Energy broker for the end consumers segment. A broker enables the access for companies which are trading smaller volumes or which do not maintain their own trading department. By using the services of a broker, broker clients benefit from a flexible access to the market.

Together with Bergen’s expertise in demand forecasting, scheduling and portfolio management even companies with minor experience in energy trading can use the advantage of direct access to the spot market. “Especially in economic challenging times, flexible supply or a purchase surplus capacity is an enormous advantage for the European industry. This advantage offered to the energy intensive industrial companies via Bergen Energi AS is another service of the EXAA”, says Dr. Rudolf Schneider, technical director of EXAA.

In cooperation with the Institute of Operations Research and Computational Finance of the University of St. Gallen, EXAA introduced another service based on stochastic analysis known as “ Confidence Intervals” (“Konfidenzbänder”). The tool allows obtaining a three-day ahead estimate with which probability the price for a particular hour will lie within a certain price range. “This instrument offers traders additional orientation when setting their price limits as well as on estimating the risk assessment of their positions. The tool can also be helpful for OTC trading”, explained Dr. Schneider.

In the beginning of 2009, EXAA entered into the training business by offering companies and other stakeholders from the energy sector a specially designed four day course “Training for Energy and Environmental Markets” (TEEM). EXAA Abwicklungsstelle für Energieprodukte AG is the Austrian power Exchange founded in 2001. Shareholders are - beside APCS Power Clearing and Settlement AG (34,55 %), Wiener Börse AG (25,12 %), Oesterreichische Kontrollbank AG (8,06 %) and smart technologies (8,06%) &ndash; the following Austrian energy suppliers or energy traders: KELAG (3,04 %), e&t Handels GmbH (3,04 %), STEWEAG-STEG GmbH (3,04 %), TIWAG (3,04 %), Verbund Austrian Power Trading AG (3,04 %), Vorarlberger Kraftwerke AG (3,04 %), Energie Graz mbH &amp; CoKG as well as OMV Cogeneration (2,98 %).
