Project: Electricity Market Design - Capacity Mechanisms
Capacity mechanisms: An overview and implementation in selected European countries and their implications for Switzerland
In this project, we developed a classification system for capacity mechanisms to show the variety of different design options. This classification system was then applied to the capacity mechanisms of France, Italy, and various proposals for Germany to estimate the impact of these new markets on the Swiss electricity market.
