Energy Trading Arrangements

The Energy Trading arrangements workstream relates to the technical operation of the market, where energy is bought and sold. 

This includes arrangements for hedging, day-ahead and intra-day trading and the process for ensuring that electricity supply and demand is balanced.

Key to the energy trading arrangements was the SEM Committee’s decision on the high level design of the I-SEM.  The decision paper set out arrangements for the trading of electricity that will be focused in liquid and transparent markets accessible to participants of all technologies and sizes.

More recently, in September 2015, the SEM Committee published a Energy Trading Arrangements Detailed Design Decision paper.
