In 2013, only 69,000 MWh were traded on the Romanian Commodities Exchange - RCE platforms, but starting with 2017
, RCE had an exponential growth that led to the impressive figure of 67,745,000 MWh in 2017, accounting for 56% of national consumption of natural gas estimated for 2017. For 2018, RCE sees a new increase based on the results that reached 30,274,000 MWh by 24.04.2018 (approximately 90,000,000 MWh for the whole of 2018), which would represent 75% of the national gas consumption estimated for 2018. And the number of transactions and customers reflects the same spectacular evolution. In 2013, RCE only had 16 auctions and 26 customers, and in 2017 RCE reached 675 auctions and no less than 360 customers. The first months of 2018 saw 165 auctions and 379 customers. The Romanian Commodities Exchange management views these figures as a demonstration of the professionalism and efficiency of all those working in the Romanian natural gas market and thanks all those who have trusted the tools provided by it for the transparent trading of these impressive volumes of natural gas.
