About us

emsTradepoint is a commodity trading exchange that provides anonymity, transparent pricing and transactional certainty.

Created in 2013, emsTradepoint established a spot market for trading natural gas in New Zealand. This proven trading platform has become a trusted alternative to natural gas bilateral agreements between buyers and sellers.

Established by Transpower New Zealand Limited, in 2015 emsTradepoint Limited was made a wholly-owned subsidiary. Effective governance is central to our operation as an independent, reliable and efficient exchange.

The NZU carbon product is the most recent addition to the exchange, launching in March 2020.
