During the last few weeks, three power exchanges went live in Southeast Europe. SEEPEX a.d. Beograd (SEEPEX) started operating a day-ahead wholesale electricity market on 17 February after the launch of the Independent Bulgarian Power Exchange EAD (IBEX) and the Hrvatska Burza Električne Energije d.o.o. (CROPEX) earlier this year. These developments will give a further push towards electricity market integration in the region and highlight the importance of the daily timeframe as a reference for electricity trading. Further initiatives towards coupling all national markets of Southeast Europe with the Pan-European Multi-Regional Coupling area are expected from all Contracting Parties.
