On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Connect Energy Economics has conducted the study “Upgrading the Internal Market“. This study accompanies the ongoing European market design discussion and explains how an advanced power market can support the long-term targets of the European energy policy. In the light of the intermediate report of the sector inquiry on capacity mechanisms conducted by the European Commissionthis study also discusses how the transformation process can be secured without compromising the long-term targets, and which risks for the targets come with capacity markets.
