What are the opportunities for trading in the energy markets?

Companies that do not wish to participate directly in energy trading themselves can do so via market access from Vattenfall. This enables them to avoid investments in accreditations with exchanges or for IT, as well as high requirements for credit lines for bilateral (over-the-counter, OTC) trading. Vattenfall offers reliable access to all major trading venues for electricity, gas and emission allowances in Europe - with a network of over 300 trading partners.

Can any company get market access to energy trading?

In principle, market access is available to companies such as municipal utilities, regional suppliers and industrial companies. In addition to direct market access, they also benefit from the consulting services provided by traders or portfolio managers.

What are the types of market access?

At Vattenfall, in addition to classic market access, there are also the products Intraday Trader, Click & Trade, Energy Trader and Direct Market Access. They offer different marketplaces - from the intraday market to day-ahead auctions on EPEX Spot and OTC power trading to market access to all major European spot and futures markets.
