trac-x Increases Number of Tradable Day-Ahead Network Points
After tracx's last increase of the number of network points in January 2010, dayahead capacity can now be traded at 22 network points in the transmission grids of six German and European network operators.
"Over the past years our focus has clearly been on increasing the platform offers and by that to strengthen our position in the capacity market", said Volkmar Müller, managing director of tracx. Mr. Müller also said tracx would continue to approach European TSOs in order to promote secondary capacity trading in Europe and by that to facilitate liquidity of the European capacity market.
Interested traders can now register for the new network points on the tracx platform.
