Electricity Markets with a High Share of Renewables: Experiences and Future Challenges
29 May 2015
The Energy Policy Analysis Group (EPAG) at the ZHAW School of Management and Law, together with the Centre for Energy and Environmental Markets (CEEM) at the University of New South Wales, is hosting the Symposium on Electricity Markets with a High Share of Renewables, in partnership with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), the Competence Center for Research in Energy, Society and Transition (SCCER-CREST) and the Commission for Technology
and Innovation (CTI). The Symposium aimed to examine experiences gained internationally to date and identify new challenges envisaged for the future. Representing the viewpoints of different stakeholders, experts from various countries and institutions will share their experiences and identify key methods and topics that will remain at the forefront of energy debate or become more important going forward.
The goal of this workshop was to bring together experts from various disciplines and relevant institutions to exchange their views on the impacts of the introduction of capacity mechanisms in neighbouring countries on Switzerland. Furthermore, it gave an overview of the research currently underway, formulate relevant re-search questions and identify
gaps that should be addressed in future research.
