Recent developments in European electricity markets suggest that Europe has taken a path where generation capacity firmness may be crucial to keep the European lights on. We are increasingly concerned with the fact that there must at all timeframes be enough generation capacity available to meet demand.
Technical advances and the desire to move to an electricity system including a large amount of non-dispatchable technologies can mean that we need to re-think how to include the end-users, and also for what we charge. Is the future customer charged for energy that has been used or for the capacity subscribed to?
Are European Energy policies fundamentally impacting working business models? How do new policies change the stakeholder roles, and the welfare distribution?
In the spirit of the research program EFORIS a variety of academics, industry and authorities will be represented at this conference.
From research to policy to business models, this conference will have something for everyone! Come and be part of the conversation!
