EEX and Transmission System Operators create new Transparency Platform for the Power Market


Leipzig, Stuttgart, Bayreuth, Dortmund, Berlin, 15th June 2009 – In co-operation with European Energy Exchange AG (EEX), the four German transmission system operators (TSOs) EnBW Transportnetze AG, transpower stromübertragungs gmbh (formerly: E.ON Netz GmbH), Amprion GmbH and Vattenfall Europe Transmission GmbH, will establish a new transparency platform on which market-relevant generation and consumption data will be published in order to further increase transparency on the wholesale market. In the framework of an experts’ working group established at the German Association of Water and Energy Industries (BDEW) TSOs, EEX, power plant operators as well as the German Association of the Energy and Power Supply Industry (VIK) and the Association of Local Utilities (VKU) are currently implementing the required preliminary work. The platform on the website of EEX will probably be launched during the fourth quarter of 2009 and will be operated by EEX. In this context, all power plant operators and large consumers are called upon to help make the new transparency platform a success through the submission of their data.

With this step, the publication requirements regarding generation and consumption data derived from the statutory obligations contained in the “Congestion Management Guidelines“ (Annex to “EU Directive No. 1228/2003“) and in chapter 4.3 of the “Report on Transparency” for the northern European region, which was prepared under the aegis of the German Federal Network Agency, will be implemented close to the market in a central as well as neutral location. The German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) established the scope and form of the data, which will be made available free of charge, in the so-called “BMWi list“ together with BDEW, VIK and VKU. Moreover, the experts’ working group at BDEW also adopted the resolution that data reported voluntarily will also be published on the platform. This means that the tried and tested structures of the current transparency platform on EEX will be continued.

Over the next weeks, the technical specifications will be agreed with all the partners included in the process and a generally comprehensible glossary for the complex “BMWi list“ will be prepared.
