From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Watt Matters is a podcast all about the energy transition and the shift to a decarbonised economy.

In today’s episode, we are looking into electricity market design. A vital part of the energy transition, market design can make or break a country’s decarbonisation efforts.

You can have all the renewable energy you need, but without an effective market in which to sell the power, this time, effort and investment would be wasted leaving the energy transition to grind to a halt.

Meanwhile, the last few months have seen huge increases in power prices across Europe. Is this the sign of a broken market or a symptom of something much bigger? Paired with more distributed energy resources, the rise of the prosumer and digitalisation, the electricity market is having to adapt rapidly.

Meanwhile, the last few months have seen huge increases in power prices across Europe. Is this the sign of a broken market or a symptom of something much bigger? Paired with more distributed energy resources, the rise of the prosumer and digitalisation, the electricity market is having to adapt rapidly.

The rising prices could be evidence that adaption towards more distributed resources that are less dependent on the prices of fuel like oil and gas, obviously volatile based on global markets and geopolitics, is more urgent.
