“Transparency in Energy Markets“ will be expanded with voluntary commitments by the market participants / information products round off the offer

2009/12/21

Dear Sir or Madam,
The web site www.transparency.eex.com for generation data in the power segment has been available for the public since 30 October 2009. The new platform “Transparency in Energy Markets“ increases the com-prehensibility of market pricing. This step aims at increasing the confidence which the public places in the markets and further promoting the development and integration of the European market.

In addition to statutory publication requirements for the transmission system operators, you will also find vol-untary commitments by the market participants there as of today.

These publications include:

Actual generation:

  • Ex-post information regarding actual generation – including generation units with a net nominal output of < 100MW.

This information is published at 4:30pm on a daily basis.

Available and installed capacity:

  • Ex-ante information regarding the available capacity – including generation units with a net nominal output of < 100MW.

The available capacity is published at 10:00am every day on a rolling basis for the next 365 days.

  • Ex-ante information regarding the installed generation capacity – including generation units with a net nominal output of < 100MW.

The installed generation capacity is published at 10:00am every day.

This step continues the tried and tested practice of publication on the current transparency platform on EEX. Following a transition period during which both platforms will be operated in parallel until 31 December 2009, the current website will be switched off and finally replaced by the new platform.

Please note:
The data under the heading “Voluntary commitments by the market participants“ on “Transparency in Energy Markets“ can deviate from the data on the old EEX platform because the degree of coverage is smaller. However, it will increase gradually with the migration of the participants in the old platform that are still missing to the new platform and with the participation of new reporting companies.

The data under the heading “Voluntary commitments by the market participants“ cannot be directly compared with the data reported under the heading “Publication requirements of the transmission system operators“ because the degree of coverage is smaller.

The reporting companies which are already taking part in “Transparency in Energy Markets” are shown un-der “Reporting companies”. Furthermore, it is specified whether the reason for reporting regarding the gen-eration unit is “statutory“ (publication requirements for the transmission system operators), “voluntary“ (volun-tary commitments of the market participants) or “statutory and voluntary“. (cf. http://www.transparency.eex.com/en/Information/reporting-companies )

In the framework of the new EEX product and price structure for information products applicable as of 1 January 2010 you will also have the possibility of downloading transparency data in the csv format via our ftp server in the future. Further information with regard to this is available at:

and

The new “Transparency in Energy Markets“ transparency site is the result of intensive co-operation between EEX, the four German transmission system operators Amprion GmbH, EnBW Transportnetze AG, transpower stromübertragungs gmbh and Vattenfall Europe Transmission GmbH, individual power plant op-erators as well as the associations BDEW [German Association of Energy and Water Industries], VIK [Asso-ciation of the Industrial Energy and Power Industry] und VKU [Association of Local Utilities]. The platform is supported jointly by EEX and the TSOs with the exchange assuming responsibility for the operation of the platform and its financing.

With the publication of generation and consumption data on this transparency platform the transmission system operators fulfil a part of their publication requirements arising from the EU regulation no. 1228/2003 and its annex – the Congestion Management Guidelines (CMG).
