Explanation:
I'm fairly certain your text refers to a "bolsa de energía", as in the following examples:

California, New York, Massachusetts, and a few other states, are progressing towards what is described as the "Retail Competition" model, while Texas is concentrating on a "Wholesale Competition" model. For California, Massachusetts and New Hampshire January 1, 1998 is the target date to start full retail level competition. Before this date, the necessary restructuring of the industry, the establishment of the Independent System Operators (ISO) and the implementation of the Power Exchange Board will take place….The Power Exchange Board will provide the necessary forum to buy and sell electricity. This study outlines the responsibility and functions of each players.

The bill creates an ISO oversight board, appointed by the governor and legislature, to oversee both the ISO governance board and the power exchange board. The law calls
for the ISO to enter into a regional compact with other western states to ensure reliability. An independent power pool, called the Power Exchange, will be set up as an entity separate from the ISO. A joint proposal of the parties to set up the Power Exchange was filed with the CPUC by April 29, 1996. The Power Exchange was filed for FERC approval, and NRECA has intervened.

The "board" part of it may have two interpretations. In most of the references I found, it refers to the governing body for the power exchange, the "consejo de administración," I guess you could call it. However, that doesn't seem to fit your context. I have a feeling yours actually refers to the electronic bulletin boards (tablones electrónicos) where the electricity generators can post their offerings (as in the Automated Power Exchange reference above).

That's my interpretation, anyway. See if it fits the rest of your context.

Good luck!

  -> thank you :-)

agree  Patricia Lutteral: Seems reasonable. However, why is it listed as a "product"?? Tough one, David. :-)
4 hrs
  -> good question, unless it's some kind of proprietary software or system for this? I don't know what else it could be.
