Market Transparency Unit
The Market Transparency Unit for Wholesale Electricity and Gas Markets (MTU Electricity/Gas) monitors the marketing of and trade in electricity and gas at the wholesale level to ensure that electricity and gas wholesale prices are competitively priced. Only those wholesale prices that give an undistorted view of supply and demand can provide market participants with an appropriate basis for their decisions. Consequently, insider trading, market manipulation, price fixing and the abuse of a dominant market position are prohibited by law. If the MTU Electricity/Gas detects any indication of a violation, it will inform the enforcement authorities responsible.
More information on the tasks, legal basis and activities of the MTU Electricity/Gas can be found on the following pages.
