Obtaining API token from Entso-E

Pow-K+ and the newest version Pow-U equipped with ESP32 microcontroller can read and display hourly energy prices.

The data source is the non-commercial EU-financed page

You can register and obtain API token free of charge, and here is the procedure:

  1. Go to and click "Login" in upper right corner.
  2. A new window opens, click on "Register" at the bottom. Fill in your email and select a password, which must be
  3. You'll receive an email requesting you to confirm activation. Click the link in the email, and you're logged in.
  4. So far so good - normal stuff.
    Now you need to send them an email to request API token, that information is somewhat hidden in paragraph 2 on this page:
    Send an email to with “Restful API access” in the subject line. Indicate the email address you entered during registration in the email body. The ENTSO-E Helpdesk will make their best efforts to respond to your request within 3 working days.
  5. They will normally respond next working day, I guess 3 days is to be on the safe side.

When you receive answer from them, there will be a button on your "My account settings" page. Click it to generate API token.

Open the main page of your Pow device, go to Configuration / ENTSO-E API, copy in your API token. Select your price region (see below map, contact your electricity company if in doubt).

Note that there is a multiplicator on this config page which you can use to simulate/approximate VAT and other taxes added to the system price.
