Day-ahead base index, for next day delivery, Monday to Sunday, 00:00-00:00 hours
Week-ahead peak index, for next week delivery Monday to Friday, 08:00-20:00 hours
Week-ahead base index, for next week delivery Monday to Friday, 00:00-00:00 hours

Publication of the index currently takes place between 16:00 and 17:00 London time.
 
On days when there are public holidays in France only, the DJ FPI is published for both day-ahead peak and day-ahead base delivery.
