Energy Trading

The EPEX SPOT Power Auction is a Day-Ahead auction, where trading takes place on one day for the delivery of electricity the next day. Market members submit their orders electronically, after which supply and demand are compared and the market price is calculated for each hour of the following day. More information here 

Mismatches between offered and bought energy result in a secondary market, called the imbalance market and selling stored energy during those moments of imbalance results in a higher selling price compared to continues supply of PV-Energy.
