Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Adapting market designs to the intermittent nature of renewable generation is a process that must have the reduction in forecast error and the avoidance of substantial real-time imbalances at its core. However, flexibility is the key to guarantee the economic viability and security of the supply of carbon-neutral power systems; being aggregators, citizen energy communities, and new flexible players, they are important agents of future power systems. Indeed, with increasing penetrations of distributed generation, the distribution system operator has a major role to play in facilitating the active participation of local players, accommodating new distributed generation and transitioning to a more flexible and democratised power system where smart grid services, self-consumption, smart meters, local trades, peer-to-peer markets, and new marketplaces and products will be required. Therefore, we invite you to submit your research or review papers considering (but not limited to) the following subjects:

  • The impacts of increasing penetrations of renewables in national/regional markets;
  • New market designs, products, and rules for decarbonised day-ahead and intraday markets;
  • Full investment-recovery of renewables in liberalized markets without externalities;
  • Decentralised investment incentive mechanisms for a net-zero electricity system;
  • Improving forecasting and information transparency in the new market designs;
  • The role of aggregators, virtual power plants, local energy communities, and new flexible players in the road to carbon-neutral and strongly liberalised power systems;
  • New designs of local energy and flexibility markets operating in the distribution grid level;
  • New local marketplaces, innovative flexibility services, and redesign of products;
  • The role of transmission networks and cross-border exchange in market integration and coupling.
