Current market price pursuant to section 41 Green Electricity Act

Section 41 Ökostromgesetz (Green Electricity Act) 2012 provides that E-Control must determine the average market price of baseload power on a quarterly basis, and to publish this information in an appropriate manner.

You can find the current and historical numbers on our German pages, but please note that the market price thus published is not the same as the energy price for consumers. Instead, it reflects rather the wholesale price for baseload power, as required by the Green Electricity Act. Since the first quarter of 2004 E-Control’s market price calculations have been based on the settlement prices of quarterly baseload futures on the Leipzig EEX exchange (Phelix index) instead of the Platts German Forward Baseload Assessement.
