This cross-border intraday solution links the existing Dutch-Belgian intraday market operated by APX-ENDEX and Belpex with the existing intraday market operated by Nord Pool Spot in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Germany.
The cross-border intra-day solution allows implicit allocation of intraday capacity over the NorNed interconnector. As a result, market participants can trade across the whole region, to the extent of the available cross-border capacity.
Integrated regional and inter-regional markets, which offer easy access to bids and offers in other countries, are critical to the development of market liquidity. The linking of the Nordic, Dutch and Belgian intraday markets is a significant step towards the European target model of an integrated electricity market.
