On 19 September policymakers and key stakeholders come together to have thorough discussions on how the new design of the electricity market should look like.
During the event, Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete will present his views on the progress made on the Clean Energy Package electricity market proposals and the necessary steps ahead.
In the panel discussions, the debates will focus on three critical challenges of the future’s electricity market, providing different perspectives on the matter. The first panel discussion highlights the (so far to a large extent unused) potential of digital solutions in providing a more efficient electricity market. This discussion is related to the public-private partnership initiative proposed by the Estonian Presidency. In the second round of discussion, the panellists will focus on how to boost the integration of renewables to the market. The main question here is how to set incentives in a manner that would not distort the overall functioning of the electricity market. In the final panel discussion, a lively debate on the functioning of the wholesale market and on how to ensure the security of supply is to be expected. Capacity mechanisms have been criticised to be a covert subsidy for fossil fuels or should they rather be seen as an integral part of the market that aims to provide security of supply?
The debates will be summarised by Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič.
