zones, going beyond the standard. In Japan, our coverage extends across the entire country, 
meticulously divided into 10 bidding zones.

Our analyst on duty publishes our Daily Market Report table before the market opens (roughly around 7:45 AM CET).

This report contains all the relevant information needed for you to be able to be prepared for when the market opens. In the Nordic part, we also present the shifts expected in the hydrological balance, precipitation, and temperatures, alongside their shifts between the last weather runs.

The Forward and SpotEx services are different in their fundamental modelling approach and also coverage of different time horizons.

Forward, modelling the present and the next four years, employs unit dispatch and merit order models for a robust analysis.

SpotEx, our short-term model, focuses on the next 90 days with an hourly resolution, harnessing the capabilities of machine learning techniques.
