Connect Energy Economics is a consultancy for decision makers in energy policy and energy economics based in Berlin. Dr. Marco Nicolosi and Dr. Barbara Burstedde represent Connect. We are looking forward to exploring new perspectives with you.
Our integrated way of working can be evaluated best on the basis of our previous contributions. To this end, selected studies, articles and talks are provided. We continuously expand our list of publications with relevant pieces of our work.
On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Connect has examined concepts for redispatch procurement. The now published results show that the concepts differ significantly in their effectiveness, efficiency and compatibility with the power market 2.0. The results also show that market-based approaches with local incentives are incompatible with the power market 2.0. They distort power prices, lead to congestion-increasing behavior, thereby increasing the need for redispatch, and create higher market power potential.
Connect wishes its customers, partners and employees happy holidays and a happy new year! We thank you for interesting discussions and successful cooperations and look forward to an exciting, energetic year 2019!
