Energy beyond the crises: how can markets deliver a secure and affordable transition?
Ten years ago the UK set out to reform its electricity market, using a variety of market and other mechanisms to deliver competing objectives of security, affordability and decarbonisation. The reform has had notable successes, such as delivering significant new renewable generation, but our goals have changed and meanwhile decentralization and digitalization present new challenges and opportunities.
Electricity is just a part of the energy transition. The problem of gas and decarbonising heat has become more pressing – and this year, consumers face the biggest energy price shock since the 1970s. As we enter a testing winter for customers – and for the energy industry – it is time to consider the short term shock we are facing now, and how the current crisis will affect our long term plans for an energy transition.
In British Institute of Energy Economics (BIEE) biennial policy conference they will be asking key questions about how the energy system should evolve and what role markets can play.
Gemserv are silver sponsors of this event and will be hosting the session 4 and networking drinks.
Session 4: Market places: Where are the new opportunities?
New markets are emerging with different scales, geographies and members. We look at the new market structures emerging from industrial clusters for energy, carbon, gas and heat, and the local differences. We consider how the opportunities of the hydrogen vector are translating into new local – and potentially global – markets, and leading to other nascent vectors such as ammonia. We consider how cities can drive local markets and we ask what a real consumer-led energy market would look like.
