Under the new agreement RWE Supply & Trading will promote liquidity in these markets by providing bid-offer spreads for Baseload Month, Quarter and Year contracts in the order book.
“In 2016, we made significant progress in these markets and the further support from RWE will help us to grow the liquidity, in particular in the emerging Spanish market. We very much appreciate RWE as a partner in further developing our offering for the European power markets,” says Steffen Köhler (pictured), EEX chief operating officer.
“Our company has a long history of effectively supporting market transparency and liquid markets. As one of the leading trading firms engaged in fuel commodity trading we see great benefits in a broad market space and a wide variety of participating market players”, says Peter Krembel, chief commercial officer of RWE Supply & Trading. “As part of the RWE Group, we seek to maintain and support market developments in the established European commodity markets, as well as expanding our involvement in market areas with unique development potential such as the Asian Pacific market region. As such, our support for French, Italian and Spanish power futures is regarded as logical consequence, meeting our ambitions in competitive markets.”
