Market codes are one of the three families of electricity codes known as network codes.The market codes are intended to promote a uniform European electricity market by ensuring that cross-zonal capacities are made available to market participants as efficiently as possible. Market codes achieve this by ensuring harmonised conditions and methods for cross-zonal trading in long-term and short-term electricity products and reserves as well as harmonised procedures for settling imbalances.
The market codes are as follows:
