Power Exchange Monitoring & Management
Nowadays, due to the power system restructuring, electricity could be treated as a merchant instead of a governmental service. It is obvious that one of the clearest mechanisms for merchant pricing is trading at the exchange environment. It was in May 2008 that the Supreme Council of Exchange allows the electricity exchange to be established. In June 2011, to form an integrated energy market, the Council allows the energy exchange to be established in which electricity, oil and derivatives, natural gas, coal and pollution allowance could be traded as merchants. It should be noted that unlike the day ahead electricity market, a double sided auction is hold in the power exchange.
