This webinar focuses on the share of intermittent wind and solar power in the EU which is increasing. Reaching a low-carbon electricity sector will depend on efficient integration of these energy sources by creating more flexibility, including through generation and demand response as well as the grid. This webinar will outline the challenge; give an overview of the status quo of EU electricity markets and present policy recommendations from the recent Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) Task Force on "Improving the Market for Flexibility in the Electricity Sector".
