New regulation could open up French power market


Producing around 572 terawatt hours of power per year, France is the second largest generator of electricity in Europe after Germany, yet its traded power market – both over-the-counter and on exchange – is one of the most illiquid.

In 2009, 1,018,189 megawatt hours (MWh) of power was exchange-traded on France’s intra-day market compared to 5,622,044 MWh of power exchange-traded on the intra-day markets in Germany, according to data from the European Power Exchange (EPEX Spot).
