THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar examines the future for Electricity Market Reform following the latest Contracts for Difference allocation round and ahead of 2018 Capacity Market auctions.
Discussion will be informed by the Government’s open consultation on the future framework for the Capacity Market auctions, as well as the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee’s recommendations on competition in the energy market, with a specific focus on the future regulatory environment for the sector and the role of the EMR delivery body going forward.
The planned agenda also looks at the future role of Contracts for Difference to support the establishment of new energy supply, such as at Hinkley Point C, as well as the current thinking on developing a smart, flexible energy system following the recent consultation and the subsequent report expected later this year.
Further sessions will assess the priorities for delivering greater market capacity and flexibility to the UK’s energy supply alongside the investment opportunities for a low-carbon future.
