Energy Exchange is the term used for the exchange market with energy products organized by the Czech Moravian Commodity Exchange Kladno (CMKB). It was launched on 11 November 2002 on the basis of the authorization granted to the commodity exchange by Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. In 2009 this specialised market started to profile electricity and natural gas for end customers, i.e. actual supplies of electricity and natural gas directly to the supply points of customers from the corporate sector and also from amongst the public contracting authorities. Currently, it represents the central market place for trading in electricity or gas in the Czech Republic.
At the Czech Moravian Commodity Exchange Kladno (CMKB) 88 contracts for the supply of 31.2 thousand MWh of natural gas and electricity for final customers worth 32.1 million crowns were concluded in the 41st week.
The price of two-year electricity contracts dropped by 2 percent to CZK 1409/MWh in comparison to the previous high-voltage trading (end of September) and stagnated at CZK 1387/MWh in low voltage.
Two-year natural gas contracts fell by 4.5 percent to CZK 514/MWh in small-off-take and closed at CZK 508/MWh in large-off-take.
