The Florence School of Regulation is joining EPEX SPOT in the organisation of the European Power Market Summit: Towards a Common Vision for European Electricity Markets? which will take place in Brussels on 5th and 6th October 2016.
The European power markets are undergoing intense transformation triggered by the increase of renewable production, decarbonisation programmes and the implementation of a new regulatory framework. The pressures originated by these factors consequently led the European power markets to embrace innovative solutions and explore new possibilities linked to renewable energy’s trade, demand response, balancing or storage resources.
Accordingly, the panels will be organised around three guiding topics:
- European power grids and markets – an ever closer union through economics or regulation?
- European power market integration and its critics – is regionalisation the new paradigm?
- Innovation in European power markets: will the new trends disrupt or provide opportunities to energy trading?
The event will be attended by high-level stakeholders of the European energy market such as Suppliers, Transmission System Operators, both National and European Regulatory Authorities, Power Exchanges and many other market actors.
