TSC member Swissgrid, the Swiss transmission system operator (TSO), recently presented proposals concerning a new market design for Swissgrid to numerous industry representatives. The company was lucky to receive a rich feedback. On 24 June 2016, Swissgrid released a document summarising the responses and assessments, also highlighting Swissgrid’s primary tasks for the near future. The main actions featured in the document are intended to increase the efficiency of the eletricity market. Swissgrid will develop concepts for:
- A real-time-based balance energy price in order to compensate generators and consumers adequately
- Cross-border intraday auctions to improve the distribution of capacities
- Further clarification of respective responsibilities concerning supply security, especially in the course of the industry working group “Responsibility for Electricity Security of Supply”.
