Marketing of Capacity

PRISMA European Capacity Platform GmbH was founded in 2005 as TRAC-X Transport Capacity Exchange GmbH (TRAC-X) in Leipzig and has, since that time, grown consistently to become one of the most important online market places for gas transport capacity.

In 2010, the German transport system operators appointed PRISMA to create and operate a platform for the awarding of primary transport capacities in Germany. With the start of PRISMA primary in August 2011, transport customers can, for the first time, use PRISMA primary auctions to acquire capacities for market area and cross-border interconnection points. Capacities at other network points can be purchased through PRISMA primary on a "first come, first served" basis. By offering a single market place for primary capacity, PRISMA replaces the established online booking systems of the German TSOs.

At the same time, PRISMA still continues to operate the trading platform for secondary transport capacity – PRISMA secondary. More information…
