DescriptionThe workshop will open with a keynote address from Professor Michael Pollitt on the future of the European single market for gas and electricity. This will be followed by four sessions which will address; The Emerging Electricity Market Design This session will discuss of the forthcoming market design and the push toward the integration of renewables, reserve and balancing markets in this new context, and the effect of market coupling on competition and regulation. It will also assess the issues facing DSOs in the market and include a round-table debate on the increased interaction between DSOs and TSOs. Capacity Remuneration Mechanisms The focus of this session is the Commission’s state aid inquiry into national capacity remuneration mechanisms. Their findings will be presented and subsequently reviewed from both a legal and economic perspective. Governance of the Electricity Market Design This session will consider the Commission’s new governance proposal for the energy market design, including discussion of ACER’s roles and the perspective of both regulators and ENTSO-E on what lies ahead. Why don’t EU consumers switch? The final session will examine the EU energy consumer, with a particular focus on the role of switching and data management.
