ECC has a high level of expertise in the physical settlement of grid-bound energy (power, natural gas) and energy related products (emission allowances).

ECC is responsible for physical settlement of traded or registered contracts. Nomination includes scheduling of local markets of ECC’s Partner Exchanges and the nomination of cross-border power deliveries as part of various European market coupling initiatives. In this context, ECC assumes the role of the crossborder shipping entity, thus contributing to the further integration of the European electricity markets.

Furthermore, ECC is linked to the Union Registry to perform the delivery of emission allowances. Additionally, since 2016, ECC is connected to the French Registry for Capacity Guarantees.
