EPEX SPOT publishes policy recommendations for a decarbonised electricity system

    The energy price crisis the sector is currently facing is unprecedented. Experts and policy makers largely agree that only our move away from fossil fuels can solve this crisis in a sustainable manner. Decarbonisation is a key challenge of the industry. A reliable regulatory framework allows the market to do what it does best: allocate the scarce resource electricity most efficiently, while setting incentives for generation investments. The power market is key to bring Europe to a decarbonised future at optimal cost.

    The European Power Exchange EPEX SPOT published recommendations to contribute to the ongoing REPower EU political debate. With targeted measures, policy-makers can foster a political and regulatory framework that will reveal the full potential of the market in driving forward the decarbonisation of the energy sector.
