Sparks in Brussels





We are now living through crucial times that will define the future of Europe’s energy market. The ongoing, gas-driven, energy crisis highlights the need to perfect the current electricity market design.  

In particular, the ongoing crisis has revealed the need to consistently pass on the benefits of renewables’ – and other low-carbon technologies’ – lower generation costs
to consumers and urgently reduce Europe’s fossil fuel dependence.  

To do that, what we need is an evolution, not a revolution of the system. A market-design fit for a net-zero power system shall build on the current internal EU energy market and its key features (cost-efficiency, cross-border exchanges, and competition between market players) while complementing it to: 

  • Enable consumers to benefit from cheaper clean and renewable energy 
  • Strengthen investment signals to power the necessary electrification rates 
  • Meet the evolving requirements of Europe’s power system for flexibility and decentralisation 

How to achieve it? 

Eurelectric and its Knowledge Partner Compass Lexecon are currently working on a key study on how to future-proof Europe’s current electricity market design to reach net zero. We will unveil our key findings on 29 March at our in-person Market Design event in Brussels.
