An important component to the completion of the Internal Energy Market, transparency has positive effects on market competition and price formation by giving access equally to all market actors, particularly new entrants, thus levelling the playing field.

This in turn improves risk analysis and decision-making; increases competition; provides tools for market monitoring and regulation; and reduces possibilities for market manipulation, thus building trust, market stability and reducing wholesale electricity prices.

In compliance with Regulation (EU) No. 543/2013 on submission and publication of data in electricity markets, the ENTSO-E Transparency Platform was launched on 5 January 2015. The platform regroups fundamental market data into a one-stop view of pan-European electricity generation, consumption and cross-border transportation.
