How to Address Growing Disbalances in the European Electricity System? Webinar

The EU has made extraordinary progress in deploying more renewable energy sources, to such an extent that major electricity system disbalances are appearing. 

Therefore, five battles now need to be considered simultaneously: decarbonization and the expansion of low carbon generation, supply and demand side flexibility for the short and long term, transmission and distribution grids’ modernization and expansion, the electrification of end uses and, finally, resilient value chains. These require huge investments, coordination, planning and challenge once more the issue of the electricity market design, the distribution of risks and incentives, and the right balance between regulation and market factors. How can further market imbalances be fixed, in both the short and long term?
