2nd International Workshop on 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. 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.

Submission and publication of the work

The workshop will be co-located with ACM eEnergy 2019. Please submit your manuscript via the HotCRP submission portal. Manuscripts will be published in the ACM proceedings and must adhere to the ACM format. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author to register and present the paper at the workshop. The organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from publication if it is not presented. For more information please contact Christof Weinhardt or Philipp Staudt.
