The Regulation of Wholesale Electricity Markets

The TU Delft has completed a research project on the regulation of wholesale electricity markets. This affects a range of factors with a high social impact, like electricity prices, the reliability of power supply and the integration of renewable energy. The research comprised three components: security of supply, the design and evolution of regulations and the regulation of interconnectors.
With respect to security of supply, a study of policy instruments for stimulating investment in generation capacity attracted significant interest by energy companies and electricity sector regulators. These instruments – named capacity mechanisms – may prove necessary for maintaining reliable electricity service when flutuating renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy become more popular. Currently, France and the UK are working on the implementation of a capacity mechanism, whereas Germany and Austria are also considering them.
The second result of this project is the development of a methodology for designing market rules, given the technical functionality and specificities of the sector. The method was designed to be applicable to other sectors and is now being used to structure the thinking about how to organize and regulate smart grids. The research also yielded insights in the factors that shape market design. This helps explain why power markets differ from each other and how the policy options for regulation are constrained by local factors.
The third main part of this project focused on the question of how to choose a governance mode for the particularly complex issue of European interconnectors was addressed by Ms. De Jong, who obtained her Ph.D. on this topic in 2009. She developed a structured approach for European regulatory mode decision-making (including the STARMODE decision tool) with which to enable and encourage the European Commission to make more informed decisions, on an ex ante basis, about the way in which it creates the rules and regulations that govern the European electricity markets and inherently their integration process.
