Interaction electricity market reforms and EU climate policies

Expertise Energy

SQ Consult led the consortium that supported DG CLIMA in increasing its understanding of proposed, ongoing and recently implemented reforms on national power markets within the EU, with a specific focus on the decarbonisation of the power sector and growth of renewable energy on the European market.

The work included both qualitative and quantitative analysis to gain an in-depth understanding on the interactions between the influencing factors and flexibility measures that impact or address system adequacy and capacity adequacy.

The final aims of the study were to determine under which conditions the EU energy-only market combined with the EU ETS carbon market can generate the necessary investment incentives for a decarbonising power sector.
