EU and CEER Launch Training on Electricity Market Design and Green Deal for Eastern Partnership Countries
The three-day EU4Energy online training on Electricity Market Design and Green Deal for Eastern Partnership (EaP) Countries brings together energy experts from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine to enhance their knowledge in the implementation of the European Union’s Clean Energy Package and the related electricity market design challenges.
The EU4Energy Programme launched a three-day interactive training today, October 19, 2021. The training will focus on the general principles and explore the challenges of electricity market design and its application as well as examine the main innovations introduced by the EU’s Clean Energy Package, covering the expected legislative evolution, electricity trading properties, price formation and re-dispatching challenges, and compatibility of renewable support schemes with the market. The participants also will learn about coordination between TSOs and DSOs and potential solutions to cope with today’s price challenges. Course participants will receive up-to-date information about the latest developments related to CACM 2.0 and resource adequacy. Furthermore, the energy experts from the six EaP countries will be engaged in group discussion on Renewable Energy Communities and Citizens Energy Communities, and will have an opportunity to present their vision and receive feedback and solutions from experienced trainers, who are employed by the European Commission DG ENER, ACER, European Union Member State National Regulatory Authorities and universities.
The training, hosted by the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), is organised in the framework of the EU4Energy Programme Phase II – Promoting the Clean Energy Transition in the Eastern Partnership Countries, which runs until December 2024 and aims to contribute to the development of sound legislative and regulatory frameworks for energy, to support the region’s transition to clean energy and the liberalisation of its energy markets. The training programme will address new challenges and opportunities, such as the gradual embedding of digitalisation in all energy-relevant market segments, while promoting cost reflectivity. Thus, citizens of the Eastern partnership countries will benefit from sustainable energy investments, prioritisation of infrastructure projects, increased regional market integration, and intra-regional trade.
The EU4Energy initiative is funded by the European Union with a total budget of €8.5 million and is jointly implemented by CEER, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Energy Community Secretariat (EnCS).
