The integration of fluctuating renewable energy production at low costs is a major challenge for European electricity systems. In this context innovative concepts for future grid management including market-based mechanisms are required to support the energy transition in Europe. Thus, it is key to consider the grid, market and regulatory perspectives jointly. The workshop therefore aims to discuss the issues and solutions for future smart market designs from different points of view. The House of Energy Markets and Finances invites all interested researchers, practitioners and students to join our event.
