EQ UMM Calculator v3
A complete rewrite of the UMM Calculator Excel sheet, including far more areas than the previous version.
March 26, 2021
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

General improvements and bugfixes.
February 8, 2021
Excel Integrator v0.23
This is a bugfix release that fixes some issued with daylight saving time that occurs in rare cases.
January 26, 2021
Added imbalance prices and volumes for Greece
The new Greek balancing market start on 1 November 2020. As usual, you can find the curves in the Time series API, in the Excel Integrator and by using our Python client. The volumes and prices are also available on the Balancing page in the web app.
January 22, 2021
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
Completing all configurations for Italy's new Calabria price zone
New price zone configuration in Italy from 1 January 2021. The Calabria region has become a new price zone CALA, and is therefore not longer part of the SUD zone. The Umbria region has moved from CNOR to CSUD. Energy Quantified has recalculated the fundamental data with the new zone configuration back to 2015.
January 15, 2021
Browsing the power market on maps
The new front page layout on our web app is our way to give you a glimpse into the future where EQ brings you a far better spatial overview of the power markets. We are looking forward to making the upgrade.
January 7, 2021
REMIT numbers for the NO2-DE connection
REMIT data added to EQ’s database enabling improved forecasts of capacity and thus also price forecast.
January 5, 2021
Update of the price zone configuration for Italy
Italy switched from 6 to 7 price sones. The Italian TSO made room for Calabria by changing the original four price zones on mainland Italy too. We are working on backcasting fundamentals and providing a forecast for the new price zone.
December 19, 2020

December 16, 2020
Excel Integrator upgraded with support for SRMC
EQ's excel integrator brings a complete numeric description of all power markets in Europe to the fingertips of any power professional that holds an EQ account. Combining Excel's tremendous ease of use with EQ's comprehensive database of power-related data has made our Excel integrator very popular.
December 16, 2020
API upgraded with support for parameters used to calculate e.g. SRMC with local taxes
Added new time-series API version with new parameters for OHLC and SRMC operations. SRMC now has a carbon-tax-area parameter for calculating local taxes OHLC-to-time-series and SRMC-to-time-series now has a fill parameter with functionality to fill holes (weekends and holidays). We have also added an Improve descriptions for OHLC and SRMC operations.
