Energinet.dk makes https://gasmarketmessage.dk available in order to ensure increased transparency on the gas market. On this website, gas market players that have concluded an agreement with Energinet.dk can send and receive information that is thought likely to significantly affect the prices of gas on the wholesale market.
In cooperation with the Danish Energy Regulatory Authority, Energinet.dk has taken this initiative in order to meet the requirements of the EU's REMIT directive with regard to ensuring equal access to such market information that may influence the wholesale price on the gas market. REMIT stands for 'Regulation on Energy Market Integrity and Transparency'.
The messages are comparable to the 'Urgent Market Messages' (UMM) that Nord Pool Spot publishes on their website for wholesalers on the electricity market.
