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.

Austrian hydropower: Extreme precipitation and flooding in week 32

Eylert Ellefsen

The hydropower situation in Austria is now at a nearly maximum resource level. Production from the reservoirs has to be increased in the coming weeks to avoid further flooding and uncontrolled production levels. So far, we haven't seen any effect on the spot market as the German renewables are the main price drivers. However, the strong Austrian hydropower will contribute to slightly lower domestic spot prices.

Yr-2021 power contracts: Massive market movements, uncertainty and COVID-19 recovery

Eylert Ellefsen

The market outlooks for 2021 are very exciting with uncertainty about French nuclear capacity, effects of German coal-fired and nuclear phase-outs, and consumption and financial recovery from COVID-19. In addition, there is an upward potential for both CO2 and gas prices.

Romanian hydropower situation back to normal?

Eylert Ellefsen

The hydropower situation in Romania and most of Southeastern Europe improved in July after a wet June. Price differences between Austra (CWE region) and Hungary/Romania (SEE region) are significantly reduced from the start of Q2. Outlooks for August indicate that the price difference most likely will come out lower than 7 €/MWh which has been traded in the end of July.
