React Quickly: Trading ESE

Great performance and high turnover frequency: Trading ESE allows you to react quickly to marketplace changes and balance peak load fluctuations. Use the practical standard configuration or easily configure your own customized product.

Due to Beate-regulation, which came into force on 01/01/2016, VNG Gasspeicher GmbH offers an account model for their storage Etzel. This enables both the discounted storage access, while using only one market area, as well as the market area crossing, this however, eliminates the grant of the discount on the transportation fee. In addition, a transfer between accounts is possible, but this falls to a rebooking fee. Thus you can continue to respond flexibly to market conditions.
