EEX energy exchange attracts higher volumes in 2021

    FRANKFURT, Jan 20 (Reuters) - The European energy exchange
EEX had higher trading volumes across its electricity, gas,
carbon and freight contracts last year, it said on Thursday,
benefiting from its global expansion.
    EEX, which is part of Deutsche Boerse, had a 5%
rise in global power volumes year-on-year to 7,405 terawatt
hours (TWh), equivalent to 13 times Germany's power consumption
as recorded by the utility industry last year.
    Gas volumes in North America more than tripled in 2021 and
in Japanese cleared power futures volumes, the exchange has an
87% market share.
    "In this dynamic market environment, we have continued to
deliver a stable market infrastructure as well as reliable
clearing operations to our trading community, while building
secure, successful and sustainable markets worldwide," Peter
Reitz, chief executive of the Leipzig-based group, said. 
    European power futures decreased by 4% to 4,568 TWh as
notable losses in Italy, France, the Netherlands and eastern
European countries outweighed gains elsewhere.
    Group gas trading was up 30% at 3,142 TWh.
    EEX Group connects 800 trading members.
