Power exchange

Independent Bulgarian Energy Exchange (IBEX) holds a license to operate the electricity exchange in Bulgaria for a period of 10 years. IBEX was established in January 2014.

The liberalisation of the electricity markets across Europe envisages the creation of an integrated European market which will allow consumers free choice of an electricity supplier leading to increased effectiveness, competition, higher standard service, security of supply and sustainable development. The power exchange plays a central role in the liberalisation process by determining the equilibrium price for electricity based on supply and demand.

IBEX started operation of a day ahead market for electricity in the Bulgarian market zone in January 2016. The company’s efforts are currently focused on developing new market segments in the Bulgarian market zone and coupling with neighboring markets.
