WindEurope/EEX joint paper on electricity market design

The reform of Europe’s electricity markets will be a success if the following elements are ensured: the phase-out of regulated prices, the recognition of future and forward markets, the grandfathering of priority dispatch and balancing regimes for existing renewables installations, a stable framework for bidding zones review and stricter rules governing on the introduction and the design of capacity mechanisms.
