Cross-border intraday trade

As of 01/12/2010, the process of capacity allocation in the intraday range is regulated by the "CEE Intraday Capacity Allocation and Nomination Procedure" (ICAN) trader guide, in which the procedure for the allocation and nomination as well as the required IT system requirements for participation in the intraday trade at the CZ/DE, CZ/AT, CZ/SK, CZ/PL, DE/PL, SK/PL and SK/HU borders are described.

You can download the current version here:

The ICAN Trader Guide was drawn up by the TSOs ČEPS, a.s., PSE S.A., MAVIR Hungarian Independent Transmission Operator Company Ltd., SEPS, a.s., TenneT TSO GmbH, Austrian Power Grid AG and 50Hertz with a view to adjust and harmonise the intraday rules in the CEE region.

This should ensure that the intraday processes provide the same degree of flexibility on the entire market and use the same rules and data formats frequently used in the scope of schedule nomination for the long-term and daily capacity allocation.

As a result, the conditions for market participants should be simplified. Transactions are made through the Damas Energy System (DaE) of ČEPS, a.s.. The DaE ePortal can be reached via the ČEPS, a.s. website:

Details on DaE (including the operational rules and user manual) are available on the ČEPS, a.s. website:

Intraday trading

In intraday trading, electricity deliveries are agreed on for the current or following day. The market players make surplus electricity available, or buy additional electricity volumes. Intraday trading allows variations over consumption forecasts to be offset within short response times, reducing the costs of compensation and control energy.
