Hungary: Electricity Market Integration 2.0 – Regional Energy Policy Forum in Budapest

The Regional Centre for Energy Policy Research (REKK) of Corvinus University of Budapest will hold its 2nd Central and South East Europe Energy Policy Forum in cooperation with the European Commission on May 30, 2017 in Budapest. This year’s forum will focus on the new phase of electricity market integration proposed by the European Commission’s ‘Clean Energy for all Europeans’ package.

The main topics of the event will be intraday and balancing market integration, cross-border reserve-sharing, cross-border integration of capacity markets, and strengthening the regional cooperation between TSOs. These are all key elements of the proposal and together, if implemented, could potentially bring electricity market integration to the next level (‘Electricity Market Integration 2.0’).

The objective of the 2nd Central and South East Europe Energy Policy Forum is to bring together decision makers and industry representatives from the CSEE region to discuss the next steps of electricity market integration in this region.

The sections are the following:
