How does the German power exchange work?

The electricity exchange is a trading venue for electrical energy, similar to a securities exchange. The traded products are time-limited amounts of electricity, for example for the following day, individual hours or longer periods of time. They are traded in megawatt hours (MWh). The German energy exchange is the European Energy Exchange (EEX) in Leipzig.


Pricing on the stock market works by matching supply and demand. Buyers and sellers remain anonymous to ensure fair trade.

Who is allowed to trade on the electricity exchange?

Electricity is traded digitally on the electricity exchange. Trading participants include energy companies, electricity providers and major customers. They are connected to the stock exchange via interfaces and transmit their bids for buying and selling electronically.

What is the OTC Market?

OTC stands for Over-the-Counter and refers to bilateral energy trading - i.e. without the use of an electricity exchange. Overall, only about 15 percent of electricity is traded on the energy exchange, the remaining 85 percent is traded via OTC trading. However, the ratio has been turning since the beginning of 2022, as many players appreciate the additional security on the stock market in times of energy crisis with high and volatile prices.

OTC trading is often carried out through brokers - that is, brokers.
