Starting on 1 January 2021, ACER requires that inside information according to REMIT be published on an “inside information platform”.
To enable market participants in wholesale energy trading to easily and effectively fulfil their reporting obligations, EEX has developed a web-based reporting service – the EEX Inside Information Messenger – in cooperation with Seven2one.
Using the reporting service, companies can report inside information not only effectively but also in a manner that is uncomplicated and transparent.
ACER update: starting on 1/1/2021, reports can only be submitted via the central platform
On 19 July 2019, the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators – ACER for short – updated its guidelines for the application of REMIT. According to ACER, information subject to reporting requirements under Article 4 of REMIT is only effectively disclosed if it is published on a central platform (“inside information platform or IIP”). Market participants without plants or with plants < 100 MW also need to report market-relevant information using such a central platform. Publications of inside information via a company’s own website – which is often common practice today – will no longer be effective as of 1 January 2021. The EEX transparency platform is listed with ACER as an inside information platform.
Transparency platform –
made & run by Seven2one
In April 2019, Seven2one took over technical operation of the transparency platform from EEX. EEX focuses on supporting the reporting companies and on the regulatory environment of the publishing obligations. The EEX transparency platform now runs as a cloud solution in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
