Conference Overview

Cross-border trading and balancing is about building an internal energy market that allows countries to share their power resources and balance the increasing demands. Currently facing the developments and new technologies in renewable energy sources, storage mechanisms, and critical changes in the energy wholesale market regulations, market players need to step up, address the challenges and come up with solutions to the energy market’s harmonization and integration.

Thus, we would like to invite you to our 4thAnnual Cross-border trading and balancing. This event will be co-located with the 4thAncillary Services and Demand Response and the 3rdCapacity Mechanisms event on January 17-18th, 2019 in Berlin. The event facilitates greater networking and debate opportunities by engaging a joint session for three energy management events on the 1stday.

The event discusses the legal frameworks that benefit market attendants, provides an overview of the current energy balancing and trading market design with a set of performance criteria for evaluation, presents the updated process of renewable energy deployment and grid management to support the recent participation in the market of demand response and renewables. Furthermore, considering the development of a more secure energy transfer across borders, transmission capacity allocation and congestion management would be the key point to be mentioned at the conference.
