“Transparency in Energy Markets“ now including data on solar energy


“Transparency in Energy Markets“ now including data on solar energy

Bayreuth, Berlin, Dortmund, Leipzig, Stuttgart, 19 July 2010 – From today data on the generation
of electricity from solar energy will also be published on the joint transparency platform
( of European Energy Exchange AG (EEX) and the four German
transmission system operators (TSOs), 50Hertz Transmission GmbH, Amprion GmbH, EnBW
Transportnetze AG and transpower stromübertragungs gmbh, launched last autumn.
The information published daily comprises the following data for all four German balance areas:

1. Forecasts regarding the expected volume generated from solar energy

( Publication Requirements of the Transmission System Operators/Power generation/Expected solar power generation)


2. Information on the volumes actually generated from solar energy

( Publication Requirements of the Transmission System Operators/Power generation/Actual solar power generation)

Reports on solar energy round off the fundamental data regarding energy generated from wind and
other energy carriers (e.g. lignite, natural gas, run-of-river, hard coal, uranium, oil), which are already
provided, and complete the representation of the situation in order to safeguard the comprehensibility
of market pricing on a comprehensive basis. The information published regarding the
generation of electricity from solar and wind energy, in particular, provides important indicators in
order to make the integration of renewable sources of energy comprehensible.

The “Transparency in Energy Markets“ platform implements the statutory publication requirements
in the field of generation and large-scale consumers, which resulted from the EU Regulation
1228/2003, and, in this way, combines these with the existing voluntary publications by power plant
operators for the first time. By now, 14 companies from Germany and 2 companies from Austria
are reporting on the platform. The degree of coverage of the statutory publication requirements for
Germany is 79.26 percent. This degree of coverage is established on the basis of the ratio of the
installed capacity reported on the platform to the total installed capacity in Germany of approx.
132,700 MW according to the 2009 Monitoring Report of the Federal Network Agency.
