Lead Time

ECC, its partner exchanges EPEX SPOT and POWERNEXT S.A. and the involved transmission system operators (TSOs) offer short lead times. This facilitates customers’ portfolio management in a market increasingly influenced by the growing role of renewable energies.

Power

The lead time strongly depends on the country and the cross-border gate closure time as determined by the transmission system operators (TSOs). Trading on intraday power markets continues until 30 minutes before delivery in Germany, France and Austria. In Switzerland and across borders, trading continues up to 60 minutes before delivery.
