Seam issues in electricity market integration:
the US vs the EU perspective
Since the early 1990s, the electricity industry has been restructured both in the US and the EU. Vertically integrated companies were unbundled and markets at the local or national level integrated on a wider geographical scale. However, different solutions have been developed on the two sides of the Atlantic Ocean for coordinating the operation of the newly interconnected systems and electricity markets.
This online debate will compare the advantages and disadvantages of the alternative arrangements adopted in the US and the EU for the integration of electricity systems and markets. The possibility to learn from the experience acquired overseas will be discussed.
