Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) is a power and energy-related market which offers physical delivery of electricity. Launched on June 27, 2008, the exchange provides several electricity trading offerings including a day-ahead market, term-ahead market for up to 11 days, Renewable Energy Certificates or RECs and energy saving certificates on the Indian market.

The company, the largest energy market in India, plans to go public on October 9, 2017, selling 6.06 million shares. The exchange has several large companies invested in it, including Tata Power Co., which was set to sell all of its 1.25 million shares in the IPO. The IPO was expected to raise 10 billion rupees, ($152.9 million).[1][2]

It has more than 5,800 participants on its market from 29 Indian states and 5 union territories.


The IEX was granted approval to operate as an automated electronic trading exchange by the Central Electricity Regulatory Committee (CERC), on June 9 2008. It was initially founded by Financial Technologies but it was forced to divest its 26 percent stake in the company after regulators ruled it the firm was not fit to run any exchanges in 2013. The exchange still runs on FT's exchange trading platform technology, however. [3][4][5][6]

IEX is the third Indian exchange to go public after the Multi Commodity Exchange of India in 2012 and Bombay Stock Exchange, or BSE in February 2017.[7]
