WindEurope priorities for the EU legislative proposal on Electricity Market Design
Over the past months National Governments have intervened on Energy Markets to address very high energy prices resulting from the Ukraine war and to support European families and businesses. Europe has so far failed to propose a joined-up policy response to the energy crisis which can undermine the very fundamentals of the internal energy market. Beyond the context of the present crisis, the transition to climate neutrality requires a regulatory framework that makes electrification the natural choice for industry and households, and passes on the benefits of renewable electricity generation to all consumers.
In this context, the European Commission is going to present a legislative proposal to adapt the EU Electricity Market Design in Q1 2023. The European wind industry calls for a Market Design that:
- sends the right investment signals to deploy wind at scale;
- guarantees energy security;
- ensures a cost-effective management of a fully decarbonised energy system.
