Webinar: An introduction to ICIS data used in the prepayment price cap

The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has selected ICIS data to calculate its price cap for prepayment customers.

We held a webinar on 26 January 2017 to help you understand the market data used in these calculations and how to adapt to this new requirement. The event was presented by Zoe Double, ICIS’ Head of Power.


ICIS Video: What is the outlook for the European energy markets this winter?

In this latest video, ICIS energy editors Jamie Stewart and Tom Marzec-Manser discuss what could happen on European power and gas markets later in the winter, when temperatures could drop further and boost energy demand.


12 past 12 for EU ETS reform? The Post 20-20 crystal ball

ICIS analysts held a webinar on 19 December analysing how the final EU ETS reform compromise might look like. The ENVI Committee in Parliament will likely have found its position just a few days before the webinar. The details of the deal and its implications for trilogues will be analysed.

During this webinar, market participants will hear how those changes could impact the future supply-demand balance in the EU ETS.


Market highlight: TTF, NBP activity flags as far-curve trade dips in December

Liquidity at the Dutch TTF and British NBP hubs decreased in December, as gas trading was disrupted by the festive break.

Over the calendar year 2016, the Dutch TTF hub surpassed the British NBP as the most liquid natural gas hub in Europe, while there was a marked shift towards greater trade on exchange platforms.


Market highlight: Belgian ZTP gas liquidity rockets to record in December

Over-the-counter traded volume at Belgium’s virtual hub, the ZTP, soared to 4.7TWh in December, up twelve-fold year-on-year, driven by a surge in transit flow through Belgium.

In our latest market highlight, ICIS looks at which ZTP contracts saw the most activity in December, and how liquidity compares with Belgium’s primary Zeebrugge hub, as well as with other illiquid European hubs.


What is the outlook for the European energy markets this winter?

European energy traders must strap themselves in and prepare for a rocky ride in winter 2016-17. Sustained supply shocks in wholesale gas and electricity markets have flipped the outlook for the high-demand season on its head, and the warnings of regulators and grid operators, that fundamental risks awaited the markets during the winters from 2015 through to the end of the decade, have materialised, at least for this season.
