Auction design and operation

Auctions are an efficient mean for selling off a good or matching supply and demand. Powernext has acquired a deep experience in designing and organizing electronic auctions in the energy sector.

In April 2007, Powernext Balancing GRTgaz was launched in partnership with GRTgaz. Two auctions per day are organized through which GRTgaz is able to buy or sell part of the gas needed to balance the transmission network.

In order to diminish operational risks, as well as organisational issues and costs, Powernext has developed algorithmic trading solutions which provide, among other things, simple and efficient 24/7 balancing services.

Based on rules and principles configured according to the TSOs’ requirements, these trading algorithms provide auditable reports of all order and trade data to both TSOs and regulators. Operations are monitored by PEGAS Market Operations, while the TSOs manage all of the features and parameters via a web interface. In order to construct the internal market for natural gas, efficient use of the interconnection capacity between market areas is vital, especially on congested interconnections.
