Hamburg trade floor.

You would like to buy or sell electricity quantities on the day-ahead market in order to balance your balancing group with as little effort as possible and optimize your energy portfolio? You want a web portal to be able to use access to the spot market flexibly?

Our Click & Trade application takes you directly to EPEX Spot - without you needing your own exchange access.

How does it work?

Act on the spot market in three simple steps:

1. Your personal access
We set up an account for you. You can log in at any time with your log-in data. The number of users is not limited.

2. Order place
After logging in, you can place orders or bids - either without a price limit (Market Order) or with a price limit (Limit Order). You have the possibility to place up to four bids for the following seven days.

3. Confirmation of your activities
After the auction has ended, you will receive a "Confirmation" via the online order book and by e-mail. This informs you whether your bids for the following day have been allocated on the exchange and at what prices. All your trades are listed in the order book. Various filter functions allow you to easily structure the individual trading days.

Convenient monthly payment

Clearing - i.e. the netting of profits and losses, the calculation of margins and the physical and financial final settlement - takes place on the exchange every day. Vattenfall takes care of this for you, both financially and administratively. You simply pay your invoice to Vattenfall each month.


Who benefits from Click & Trade?

Click & Trade is ideal for all market participants who want easy access to the spot market. In particular, municipal utilities, regional suppliers, industrial companies, energy traders and producers can use it to easily optimise their electricity portfolio.
