In the first half year of 2020 our participants have traded 14.500 MWh on Ex-post (Increase of 34% compared to period Q3 & Q4 2019). In total 3.860 ex-post trades (Increase of 33% compared to Q3 + Q4 2019) have been traded.
The participants have done 3.860 trades and they have saved in total €870.000,- on their imbalance costs. Which is equivalent to an average of 60 €/MWh imbalance.
We still got 11.332 (sum of Buy & Sell orders) orders worth 24.900 MWh of Ex-post orders open for trading (Increase of 28% compared to Q3 and Q4 of 2019). On 95,5% of the regulation state 2 PTE’s, published by TenneT, we had orders quoted. If we look at the price disagreements at expiration (D+1 9:30) where a price difference between highest buy and lowest sell order was less than 1 euro, a possible 1400 MWh could have been traded more if agreement was reached.
So the opportunities for the market to save more on the imbalance costs are still there and can be leveraged.
