New Price List to turn EEX into a One-Stop Shop from January 2011
From 2011 only one overall annual fee of EUR 25,000 p.a. will be charged for trading on all Spot and Derivatives Markets of EEX Group. This already includes a technical connection. In order to facilitate the entry for new trading participants a reduced annual fee of EUR 16,000 p.a. is charged during the first year of participation in trading.
The harmonisation of the transaction fees for exchange trading and the OTC registration for German and French power futures at Cent 0.75 per MWh constitutes a further central innovation.
The transaction fees for secondary trading on the Spot Market for Emission Allowances are reduced to Cent 0.5 per tCO2 and the transaction fees in clearing are reduced to Cent 0.1 per tCO2. On the Derivatives Market for Emissions the transaction fees for exchange trading and the OTC registration in primary and secondary trading are reduced to a uniform amount of Cent 0.18 per tCO2.
