A complete rewrite of the UMM Calculator Excel sheet, including far more areas than the previous version.
March 26, 2021
New feature
Excel Integrator v0.25
You can now download forecasts published at any date by only specifying the date. This has been possible to do in the Time series API, but in the Excel sheet you previously had to set the issue date and forecast tag. Now you can specify an "issued-at-latest" date and the Excel Integrator will find the newest forecast up-to that date.
March 23, 2021
New feature
Python client v0.6
Plenty of improvements in the documentation, improved pandas-integration, added support for Realto-users to connect to Energy Quantified's API, updated the area and borders to reflect the newest changes in Italy, and more. See https://energyquantified-python.readthedocs.io/ for more details.
March 17, 2021
Fixed
Price spreads for Turkey
Turkey is the only market in Europe that doesn't have a spot market in CET time, which caused issues for our implementation for price spreads. We've worked around this and now properly displays prices spreads between Turkey, Bulgaria and Greece despite the markets being in different time zones.
March 5, 2021
Improved
Excel Integrator v0.24
Add support for period-based instances in the Excel Integrator. In other words, you can now download REMIT-capacities from any time in history to compare how the capacities have changed between two dates. This functionality has been available in the Time series API for a long time, and now you can also do it in the Excel Integrator.
March 1, 2021
Improved
Add the control run to the ECMWF 46-day ensemble forecast
We have now included the control run to all 46-day ensemble forecasts. You will notice that the forecasts have 51 ensembles/scenarios, where they previuosly had 50.
February 28, 2021
New feature
Time series API: Added TSV-response for period-based instances
Add support for loading instances for period-instance series in TSV-format. Previously, these were only available in JSON format. This is a huge upgrade, allowing Excel Integrator users to extract older instances to see how the REMIT capacity was reported on an earlier stage.
February 26, 2021
Improved
Changes in NTC reporting for GB-FR and DE-CZ borders
We have fixed cross-border capacities for GB-FR and DE-CZ following changes in NTC outage reporting: 1. Outages between Germany and Czech Republic was previously reported on "Germany", but now the messages are published with the German TSOs as area. 2. GB-FR introduced a new 1014 MW cable around new year. The reporting is now per cable, and not on the total transfer capacity.
February 22, 2021
Improved
Extending lead-time to twelve months for NTC capacity REMIT curves
Over a hundred curves, like "DE>PL Exchange Net Transfer Capacity MW 15min REMIT", have been updated to include up to twelve months lead-time in capacity.

Decoupling UK after Brexit
As UK left the EU internal energy market on 1 January, implicit market coupling no longer takes place on the interconnectors with Great Britain. Nord Pool N2EX and EPEX are now running as two separate spot auctions. Results from both auctions are available on Energy Quantified. For Northern Ireland the single electricity market (I-SEM) with Ireland continues as before, except for the decoupling from Great Britain.
January 21, 2021

November 18, 2020
New feature
New power connection DE-BE added to the spot price system
ALEGrO is the first link between DE and BE. ALEGRO was introduced gradually from 18 November 2020 and will expectedly reach its capacity plateau for the DayAhead market on 5 December. The 2000 MW capacity intraday capacity is to be introduced in 10 days starting 8 December. The technical complication associated with this DC line required change in the policy regulating the flow base marketing coupling area. Before the introduction, only “intuitive” solution was accepted. (Power flow in the direction of the highest price. After the introduction also non-intuitive solutions are allowed in the FBMC area.
November 16, 2020

November 11, 2020
Improved
Faster updates and improved quality on REMIT data for GB
We switched to using BM Reports as a source for REMIT outage messages in Great Britain. Previously, we used ENTSO-E Transparency. The switch gives faster and more reliable updates We have also experienced that some messages that were on BM Reports didn't appear on ENTSO-E. The upgrade should improve the data quality on outages messages in Great Britain.
November 2, 2020
Improved
REMIT view improvements
Simplified the REMIT outage message listing for messages with many time periods. Some powerplants have a couple of hundred time periods in their messages, so in the message list these time periods are now merged into one row where we write the entire date interval and the minimum and maximum available capacity in the interval. You can click on the row to view the details.
