WASHINGTON, May 17, 2024–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nodal Exchange has been named Commodity Exchange of the Year for the second year in a row by Energy Risk magazine. The Energy Risk Awards recognize excellence in financial risk management across the global commodities markets.

In addition, Nodal Exchange lists natural gas contracts. Nodal Exchange is the market leader in North American power futures achieving 55% share of open interest at the end of April 2024. Nodal posted a record quarter in Q1 2024 with 892 million MWh traded power futures volume, surpassing Q1 2022’s record of 850 million MWh.
