Updating the current market design to fully empower consumers
Delivering a power system enabling energy services at scale will require an update in the current market design. On the one hand an “exchange of energy blocks” hub, a regulated exchange platform allowing decentralized exchange of energy on a 15-minute basis between consumers and various market actors. On the other hand, the implementation of a robust price signal reflecting the system condition in real-time, which consumers can use as reference to optimise their consumption and offering/delivering energy services. In this session, we will present the key market design aspects and concrete elements under development to support this vision.
