Energy Market Engineering

The energy landscape is undergoing several fundamental changes. Decentralized and intermittent generation from renewable energy carriers is replacing the controllable fossil fuel energy sources. Furthermore, micro-grids advocate a semi-distributed infrastructure as opposed to the conventional centralized energy systems. Finally, increasing the number of electric vehicles, and the replacement of passive consumers with active prosumers requires new energy trading platforms.

1st International Workshop on Energy Market Engineering

These trends create major challenges to electricity markets. Introducing new ways of providing flexibility, emergence of new concepts such as vehicle to the grid, redefining energy/power unit commitments, and creating local electricity markets. These are some examples of how new market designs can accommodate these changes efficiently.
