How can electricity markets be designed in order to ensure efficient and timely investment in adequate generation and network infrastructure?
- What actions are needed to better integrate and coordinate regional electricity markets? How can efficient integration of high shares of variable renewable energy and resource adequacy be ensured over large areas with multiple jurisdictions?
- What implication does the large-scale deployment of renewables have on the functioning of existing regulatory and market arrangements? Looking ahead, will electricity markets deliver the low-carbon investments needed to transition to low-carbon electricity systems?
The results of this event workshop will provide an essential contribution to the IEA activities on electricity security and market design. The meeting will be informal in nature and held under the Chatham House Rule. Each session will be introduced by invited members of the advisory panel and followed by a roundtable discussion. Attendance is by invitation only.
