Re-estimated fundametal models to fit the ICON models
Weather models provide different output parameters and parameter definitions. Because of this, one must make weather model-specific adjustments to the fundamental models each time you quantify a new weather model.
December 16, 2021
Added the ICON weather forecast
As part of EQ's strive to support a stellar data feed, we have added quantified weather forecasts for the ICON weather model. The ICON model supports eight daily updates, 4 with 120-hour lead time and 4 with 30-hour lead time.
December 16, 2021
The border between DE-FR and DE-BE was added to the REMIT capacity data
Remember that these borders are flow-based, meaning the reported REMIT capacity will not represent the actual scheduled day-ahead flow capacity.
December 15, 2021
Added price coverage in PLN and GBP
Published Polish Fixing-1 spot price in PLN and the N02 spot price in GBP from N2EX.
December 11, 2021
Filter by commodity
Added a commodity dropdown selector on our Data Search page. The filter lets you conveniently filter out all curves for power, gas, and other commodities. Combining the commodity picker with a country, say "German power", returns all supply and demand-side factors, historical data, multiple forecasts, derived data like fundamental climate, seasonal normal, capacities, etc., for Germany. Note that data resolution and definition are also reconciled. Timesaving and convenient.

Gas data coverage grows
EQ's coverage of gas data grows. After three weeks, we now provide 1000 curves for the gas market. Soon we add the gas weather and quantify the weather's effect on gas fundamentals. The service is still in BETA and free of charge. You are welcome to test and gain full access to the functionality of EQ's API, Python client, and Excel integrator. Have fun.
November 4, 2021
Soft launching gas data
Started to add gas data to the EQ database. Completed EQ's gas data will be as comprehensive as our power data. So far you will find actual data.

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.

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.
