Editorial: The current discussion about changing the power market model

The European Commission has already commenced a public consultation about changing the model of the European power market, with many corporations and bodies already participating.

According to the current landscape, European bodies (ACER, CEER) and Eurelectric do not want a change of the current model and they ask for marginal pricing to remain as the basis in the wholesale market. Renewables bodies move in the same direction, but there are some differences when it comes to the best possible tools to achieve the goal of reducing energy cost and make it more predictable over time.

At the center of this discussion are Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) that set a specific price between a consumer and a producer, but also Contracts for Difference (CfD), where the state sets a price and then the producer either returns money to the state everytime the market price is higher, or gets paid when the price is lower.

Renewable bodies have said that they do not want these contracts to become mandatory, but they prefer to freely choose the tools in order to attain long term viability for their investments. The Commission has asked about the possibility of mandatory PPAs and CfDs, but so far, the majority of the private sector has moved against it.

Therefore, the issue must also be analyzed from a political perspective. Right now, an alliance of northern European states under Germany has been formed, who ask for maintaining the current market model, while southern European countries are in favor of a more radical approach.

The result of this fight will be shown in March, when the Commission's consultation will be over and Brussels will present its final proposal. Given the fact that this proposal will set the course of the market for the following decades, it is of high importance.
