Last year, we explored Electricity Market Design (EMD) before it even became a proposal. This year, we’re taking it a step further by exploring long-term challenges that go beyond the EMD reform proposal.
High-level speakers from energy regulators, European institutions, industry associations, consumer organisations, and others will be joining the discussions on the latest advancements, challenges, and opportunities in the developing decarbonised and low-carbon gas markets.
On Thursday 9 November, the 15th Citizens' Energy Forum took place in Dublin. The focus of this year's agenda was middle and low income consumers and on solutions that they can access or put in place. CEER President Annegret Groebel was a panelist for the Plenary Session on "Empowering consumers to help manage their energy bills". She highlighted the role regulators play in building trust and providing clear information to consumers. She stressed that empowering consumers during the energy transition is vital, while emergency measures should be temporary.
