Successful launch of the new Belgian-French & Belgian-Dutch Intraday solution

Downloads & Contact

Today the Dutch and Belgian intraday markets were successfully connected with the intraday markets in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland.

Elia, RTE and TenneT offer intraday cross-border capacity for the Belgian-French & Belgian-Dutch bidding zone border through the M7 intraday trading platform. M7 platform is now used for all continental EPEX SPOT intraday markets, and it replaces the trading platform EuroLight that was previously used for local and cross-border intraday trading in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The new Belgian-French and Belgian-Dutch Intraday solution now implicitly connects the Dutch and Belgian markets with the French, German, Swiss and Austrian intraday markets to further improve liquidity in the intraday market. The first successful deliveries traded on M7 platform took place on the 4th of October for the local Dutch and Belgian markets and on the 5th of October 2016 for cross-border trades.
