Market Design

October 2015

EASE responded to DG Energy’s Public Consultation on a new Energy Market Design.

Key messages

EASE would like to stress that the future governance framework of the Internal Energy Market needs to incorporate regulatory changes creating a separate asset category and rules for electricity energy storage systems. This is necessary due to their dual generation and demand nature. The new asset category should recognise the contribution energy storage systems will make to system security, loss reduction and the provision of other ancillary services on the T&D networks.
In terms of regulatory oversight and the future role of ACER, EASE thinks the procurement of ancillary services and the way tariffs for transmission network use of system charges are estimated and applied, must also be made transparent across Europe to provide the right investment signals for providers of flexibility (i.e. energy storage and DSR operators).
