Capacity mechanisms in the electricity sector have become a much debated topic in Europe. National electricity markets are increasingly interconnected and the cross-border implications of state subsidies must be carefully considered.
Join us in discussion of the FSR’s new book, ‘Capacity Mechanisms in the EU Energy Market’ which provides a first academic treatment of how capacity mechanisms work in policy and practice, and their possible consequences.
Editors: Leigh Hancher, Adrien de Hauteclocque, and Małgorzata Sadowska
Publisher: Oxford University Press
