Price limitation

for day-ahead exchange transactions

If in the case of negative prices on the EPEX a second auction is called, the TSO can deviate from the obligation to sell the complete feed-in resulting from the Day Ahead forecast on a Day Ahead spot market price-independent. This procedure is allowed according to AusglMechAV ยง8 section 1.

In the links below you can find the daily hours of price limitation, the amount of the price limits for each tranche (10 equal parts) and if necessary the unrealised amount of energy by hour.
