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.
