since 19 November 2019

The single intraday market enables continuous cross-border

trading across Europe. This means that orders entered by

market participants for continuous matching in one country

can be matched by orders similarly submitted by market

participants in any other country within the project's reach as

long as transmission capacity is available.

Interview – Mrs. Andreja Zupan

GEN-I Trading Director & BSP SouthPool

Members Chamber President

BSP SouthPool has joined Single Intraday Coupling

project SIDC (XBID) on the 19th November 2019. How

important is by your opinion the project for European

electricity trading in general?

At GEN-I we believe that SIDC project is an important part of

European electricity market model. With implementation of

SIDC in EU all intraday markets will benefit due to increase of

market depth and liquidity and also given possibility for

active participation of certain production and supply

companies with flexible assets, that had until now only local

presence.

You are also a president of Members Chamber on BSP

SouthPool. Where do you see major benefits for

trading companies as Gen-i and other trading

members within SIDC?

Before implementation of SIDC, bigger trading companies

were taking advantage out of options of the utilization of

unused cross-border capacities between markets on intraday

level; this advantage has diminished however we see much

bigger potential for intraday trading due to already

mentioned increased liquidity and new players that are much

more active on intraday market. GEN-I was prepared on

market changes before implementation of SIDC since we

have foreseen a huge opportunity arising from almost day-to

day increasing flexible production especially from

renewables, with GEN-I acting as an aggregator of smaller

assets.

H o w d o y o u f o r e s e e t h e d e v e l o p m e n t a n d

opportunities for Gen-i within the »Clean energy for all

Europeans package« (formerly known as »Winter

package«)?

With the increase of the planed share of renewable energy in

the European generation profile we see a lot of opportunities.

Of course, GEN-I wants to be at the forefront of the green

transformation by being a role model and providing feasible

solution. We put our customers and their experience in the

center of our service by providing solar power plants on

individual houses, residential and office buildings. We are

constantly investing in research and development and

striving for technical solutions that will make the transition to

a carbon-free society.
