The nominal/multiplier of the contract is determined in MWh, using the following formula:

For contracts with unit of registration 1 MW:

MW * No of contract days * No of product type relevant hours

For contracts with unit of registration 0.1 MW:

0.1 MW * No of contract days * No of product type relevant hours

For spring and autumn daylight saving time, there will be one additional hour (if day has 25 hours) or one hour less (if day has 23 hours).

The contract is priced in Euros per MWh, with two decimal places.

The registration period is between 08:30 and 19:00.
