/ Events / Energy / Energy Union Law / REMIT and artificial prices: is guidance from the case law finally emerging?
Pursuant to the EU Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT) of 2011, entering into any transaction or issuing any order to trade in wholesale energy products which secures, or attempts to secure, the price of one or more wholesale energy products at an artificial level, amounts to market manipulation. What is the notion of “artificial prices” under REMIT? Is guidance from the case law finally emerging?
In this context the debate will also look at a very recent NRA decision on artificial pricing. In late April 2021 the Spanish National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC) published a decision in which it holds that the company Rock Trading World, S.A. manipulated the Spanish gas wholesale market between 3 and 7 November 2018, breaching the EU Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT) of 2011. According to CNMC, Rock Trading World’s behaviour was likely to send false or misleading signals to the market as to the price of such gas wholesale energy products and secured the price formation process of the gas wholesale energy products at an artificial level, thus breaching REMIT, which prohibits market manipulation.
