Trading quarter hours

The obligation for being balanced by the quarter became an increasingly important issue over the last years.

Variation of quarter hours due to averaging whole hours not only leads to high costs of balancing energy but also generally jeopardizes the grids stability.

EXAA Energy Exchange Austria has adressed this problem by integrating quarter hours for trading in its day-ahead spot market by September, 3rd, 2014.

With the Factsheet we want to introduce the concept of quarter hour trading at EXAA and answer related frequently asked questions.

If you are interested in this new trading segment, EXAA staff will be glad to answer further questions.
