Market and Regulation

As the energy landscape is evolving, the markets and regulatory frameworks have to change accordingly.

Elia Grid International can support you in navigating these challenges.


Market structure and Market design

The unbundling of the energy sector, the reorganization of energy markets or the restructuration of system operators and grid assets utilities, require new market structures. We can bring detailed analyses of models and processes.

Elia Grid International offers market products development, studies and implementation processes related to market set-up, data management, regional market coupling, interconnectors and advice in balancing market design and implementation. As Power System Operators are at the heart of the electricity system, they play an ever-increasing role in the development of local, regional and international power markets. Elia Grid International can help you in developing the necessary electricity and balancing market mechanism.
