SIDC parties confirm successful go-live on 1 August 2023 for ETPA’s trading platform to operate within the European Single Intraday Coupling. System performing well. ETPA started hosting trading in the Dutch Market Area. The Nominated Electricity Market Operators (NEMOs) and Transmission System Operators (TSOs) cooperating in the ETPA Local Implementation Project, which aims to integrate ETPA into the European Single Intraday Coupling (SIDC), confirmed the successful addition of ETPA’s trading platform to SIDC.
The integration of ETPA’s trading platform into SIDC marks another important milestone towards increasing the efficiency of the single European Electricity Market. Market participants operating across countries will benefit from an Electricity Market that becomes more liquid and therefore increasingly competitive. More market participants will be joining SIDC, allowing for more assets to react to price signals and therefore adding flexibility and reducing price volatility. The map below shows the operating NEMOs and TSOs in SIDC.
SIDC currently couples the continuous intraday markets of 25 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.
