The survey is aimed at anyone with an interest in European market coupling, including integrated utilities, portfolio generators, banks, commodity traders, governments, regulators and transmission system operators.
A July 2013 study for the European Commission put the potential Europe-wide benefits of coupling at €2.5 billion to €4 billion ($3.5 billion to $5.5 billion) per year, once coupling is fully implemented.
While many market participants have already operated under market coupling, others are about to gain their first experience of this critical Europe-wide initiative. Although the focus so far has predominantly been on day-ahead electricity markets, it is expected this will increasingly shift to intra-day and balancing markets during the next five years.
On this basis, Energy Risk and Baringa believe it is timely to ask: “Is market coupling a game-changer?”
The survey examines four main areas, including market impacts; market readiness; business impacts; and business readiness.
The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and all responses will be treated in the strictest of confidence. In return for your participation, you will have the opportunity to receive a free trial to Energy Risk and enter a draw to win a special prize. You will also receive a link to the survey report once it is complete.
The survey will close on February 18, 2014.
