Options for the Design of European Electricity Markets in 2030

Closes 14 May 2021

Opened 1 Apr 2021


Following on the work on the Vision 2030, ENTSO-E has published its discussion paper “Options for the design of European Electricity Markets in 2030”. The paper presents the interim results of an analysis started in 2018 focusing on necessary improvements to the design of European electricity markets  to facilitate the achievement of  the 2030 climate objectives. A summary of this analysis  was already presented during a ENTSO-E public webinar held on 12 October 2020 as part of the ENTSO-E Vision 2030 week.

It should be noted that the possible market design evolutions outlined in this paper are options that we have considered in our analysis and are not intended to represent ENTSO-E’s positions or TSOs’ views.

Why we are consulting

Our objective is to trigger an open policy debate on a wide range of possible market design evolutions with all relevant European stakeholders. For this purpose ENTSO-E is launching a consultation on this discussion paper from 1 April to 14 May.  The results will be discussed in a dedicated workshop on 10 June 2021.

We hope to receive written answers on all or most of the questions; however, readers and respondents should feel free to reply only to a subset of questions. General market design comments not particularly relevant to any of the specific sections of this discussion paper can also be submitted (see question 71).
