Electricity Study – Analyses for a secure, cost-efficient and environmentally-compatible power supply (Study Electricity Market 2)
The decarbonization goal calls for a consistent expansion of renewable energies. In this process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, electricity will become an important energy source for decarbonizing other parts of the energy system in future, because CO2 intensity in the electricity sector is falling. This will further expand the already considerable interfaces between the power sector and other energy supply areas, for example in heat supply and transport. This sector coupling requires a regulatory framework that enables the efficient coordination of different requirements. Large areas of electricity market regulation and design require continuous analysis and constant further development in the context of the energy transition.
