For the fourth time in its history, the Railway Administration has selected the supplier of traction electricity for the carriers by means of an electronic auction. This was done through the exchange floor at the Power Exchange Central Europe (PXE).
„We are glad that the Railway Administration has been using PXE services for the fourth year in the selection of the supplier and subsequent gradual price fixing. For us, the auction for the selection of the supplier is the beginning of the whole process of cooperation with the Railway Administration, as the final price will be known only on the basis of the price fixing steps, which will be decisive for the final price. Individual steps will be carried out at the current wholesale market prices and for the Railway Administration this process represents the optimal way of purchasing with the maximum level of risk diversification,“ said General Secretary David Kučera of the Power Exchange Central Europe.
The volume demanded was a total of 1.226 TWh. A total of seven entities – PXE trading participants – registered for the exchange floor and competed for the delivery. The winning supplier was ČEZ ESCO, a.s., which will provide electricity for the Railway Administration next year under the given conditions.
