In mid-December 2015, TSC member Swissgrid had introduced suggestions for a new market design to raise the efficiency of the electricity market. Following a workshop and various discussions with industry representatives, the Swiss transmission system operator (TSO) received valuable feedback. The proposed reforms to strengthen the price signal and the suggested improvements of cross-border trade met with a largely positive response. Swissgrid’s proposals concerning a market-based, regional approach to secure supply were discussed more controversially. Swissgrid is going to resume the feedback and findings in a final document.
