EUGINE – EEX joint position paper on the electricity market design
Ensuring a successful trilogue for a future-proof electricity market design
The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union have finalised their respective amendments to the European Commission original version of the Electricity Market Regulation and Directive as published in November 2016. These documents form the basis for the trilogue negotia-tions soon to be kicked off. The positions approved by the two institutions already overlap on several topics, but for the trilogue negotiations to successfully deliver a sustainable and future-proof electricity market design a number of provisions need to be improved. With this paper the European Energy Exchange (EEX) and the European Engine Power Plants Association (EUGINE) put forward their suggestions for a fruitful and effective trilogue.
