The impact of market design on transmission and generation investment in electricity markets

05/26/2021 04:30 pm 05/26/2021 05:30 pm Australia/Melbourne The impact of market design on transmission and generation investment in electricity markets

Electricity market design interacts with transmission network investment decisions, for example through multiple pricing zones or curtailment rules. In this webinar, Professor Zöttl will explore this and quantify the effects of curtailment and transmission investment in a model calibrated to the German market. Valuable insights can be gained for Australia, as the country faces a significant redesign of its market and grapples with a fast energy transition that may require further transmission investment.

Speaker

Professor Dr Gregor Zöttl, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany

Gregor Zöttl is a professor of industrial organisation and energy markets at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany. He completed his doctoral degree on applied microeconomics, with a focus on the energy industry, at Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, in 2008. He then joined the Seminar of Economic Theory at LMU Munich, where he completed a habilitation in 2012. His research focuses on the design of regulated and unregulated markets, including a particular interest in the analysis of energy markets. Professor Zöttl has written research papers on a range of related topics, such as how long-term investment activities can be ensured in energy markets.
