Description

This report sets out an assessment of the costs and benefits associated with options to integrate national electricity balancing markets across the EU. The integration of electricity balancing markets is essential to the creation of a well-functioning Internal Electricity Market, and therefore an important step towards realising a common market for electricity. By presenting analysis on the nature and scale of the costs and benefits realised under alternative options for integration, this report will help inform EU policy on market integration to the ultimate benefits of its citizens.
