REMIT untangled

How do REMIT messages stack up? Energy Quantified (EQ) now provides quantified REMIT and UMM messages for all your areas. A notoriously complicated, but important data feed is boiled down to easy-to-handle numeric time series. Choose the price-area you focus on and see the:

  • Total available capacity per fuel type (nuclear, coal, etc.)
  • Historical production associated with the capacities
  • Production forecasts from EQ (where available)

EQ recalculates the available capacities whenever new outage messages become available, assuring you get up-to-date data.

Want to grab the historical data?

Help yourself to EQ's database. All REMIT/UMM data are of course saved in the highest possible resolution. EQ takes care of all problems connected to resolution.

  • Retrieve data for any individual power unit or stacked by fuel type going years back
  • Apply our easy-to-use search and filter functionality to create a list of variables to download
  • Use the Excel Integrator or the Time series API to pipe any data available on EQ directly into your own models and systems.

In simple terms, you do not need your own specialised database to start using EQ's REMIT data - or any data from us for that matter. Furthermore, you do not have to keep track of a complex nomenclature or random IDs. All EQ time series have descriptive names.

In fact, if you have claimed your EQ access, you will be up and running with a REMIT feed in no time. If not, claim your access to EQ here.  

Want to view the outage messages?

No problem. View messages sorted by price area and time horizon/product (day-ahead, week-ahead, month-ahead, etc.). What’s truly valuable is not really how much we show, but rather all the irrelevant information we are removing for you.

This will save you the time you’d otherwise have to spend browsing messages that are not active or otherwise not relevant for the market you active in.

Why do we do this? Because we can.

Numbers count.

Spot prices increase as Central Western European hydropower production hits 25 year low

This April has seen a notably cold spell of weather sweep across Europe. Temperatures have been 4 or 5 degrees Celsius below normal in most areas, whilst spot prices for the past month have delivered 5-7 €/MWh higher than expected in several areas. In this blog post, we study how the Central Western European (CWE) hydropower system developed during this cold spell and compared this situation to available historical statistics.

Germany avoided a supply squeeze this winter, but what next?

When Germany closed down 4.8 GW hard coal plants this winter, the impact could have been severe, but the average output from German coal plants increased year-on-year due to a positive clean dark spread. That escape from a capacity squeeze will be harder to avoid next year as more capacity will closed down.
