The partnership

EPEX SPOT is a European electric power exchange covering Austria, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Norway, Poland, Luxembourg, Sweden, the Netherlands, France and Belgium, with services also provided to the Hungarian and Irish exchanges. In October 2023, enspired became EPEX SPOT’s first approved Professional Certified Trader (PCT). As a PCT, enspired can offer trading-on-behalf services to other trading members within the EPEX SPOT ecosystem.

The project

The groundbreaking service is fully integrated into the exchange, which means that all PCT transactions use the credit line of the Beneficiary and are automatically financially and physically settled on the Beneficiary’s ECC (European Commodity Clearing) account. With this new offer, EPEX SPOT gives market participants effortless access to a compliant, secure and truly integrated trading-on-behalf service for all or part of their portfolio.

EPEX SPOT is very pleased to onboard enspired as a Professional Certified Trader. As such, enspired will be able to enrich the trading possibilities and facilitate the market access of the EPEX SPOT trading community,” David Assaad, Director of Marketing & Customer Solutions at EPEX SPOT, says of the project. enspired CEO and Co-founder Jürgen Mayerhofer shares the sentiment: “We are thrilled to be the first exchange member to be approved as a PCT at EPEX SPOT. With this unique service, our customers can delegate parts or all of their trading activity to us and enjoy cutting-edge trading performance for specific asset portfolios or simply automate night and weekend shifts.”

The environmental edge

With a trading-on-behalf service so readily available, flexibility integration will become a much simpler and less restrictive process. This will have a positive effect on the transition to clean energy as batteries or renewables without a comprehensive cross-market trading option cannot meet the circulation quota that is needed to materialize change.
