The Configuration of Bidding Zones, Liquidity and Competition in the Electricity Market

Dates:
  • Thu 18 Jun 2020 14.00 - 17.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-06-18 14:00 2020-06-18 17:30 Europe/Paris The Configuration of Bidding Zones, Liquidity and Competition in the Electricity Market

FSR Regulatory Policy Workshop Series 2019-2020

The Online Workshop will aim to reflect and review the available evidence on the relationship between bidding-zone configurations and market liquidity. It will then consider to what extent larger bidding zones, when not supported by the capacity of the underlying network, can promote competition to the benefit of energy consumers.

To explore these issues, the Workshop will be structured in two sessions:

  • Session I (14.00 – 15.30 CET) will explore the available evidence on the relationship between the size of bidding zones and market liquidity, trying to draw conclusions on how liquidity should be considered in the context of a bidding zone review.
  • Session II (16.00 – 17.30 CET) will focus on the extent to which larger bidding zones might be able to promote competition in the electricity market to the benefit of energy consumers, irrespective of the capability of the underlying network.

This workshop is exclusively open to national regulators, representatives from public bodies and associate & major donors of the FSR Energy area. Special registration requests must be submitted to the coordinator of the workshop Mara Radulescu.
