Zapewnienie niezawodności systemu energetycznego a mechanizm mocy

By Michael Hogan, Edith Bayer, Joanna Maćkowiak-Pandera

Jeżeli decyzja o mechanizmie mocy zostanie podjęta - istotne, aby rozwiązanie to nie zablokowało transformacji sektora energetycznego i umożliwiło dywersyfikację źródeł wytwarzania po 2020 r. oraz wspierało poprawę innowacyjności. Mechanizm ten powinien wynagradzać nie tylko moc, ale również zdolności do produkowania energii w różnych przedziałach czasowych.

Elementy nowej oragnizacji rynku energii w Polsce

By Edith Bayer, Philip Baker, Jan Rączka

Nowa organizacja rynku energii w Polsce musi dać mocny sygnał cenowy do uruchomienia inwestycji w sektorze energetycznym. Istotne są nie tylko nowe moce wytwórcze, ale także zarządzanie popytem, wsparcie integracji taniejących źródeł OZE, wykorzystanie rozproszonych magazynów energii oraz inteligentnych sieci energetycznych. Dyskusja, którą w tym roku zapoczątkowała Komisja Europejska, będzie fundamentem dla funkcjonowania rynku energii w przyszłości. Daje szansę na poprawę efektywności kosztowej polskiego sektora energetycznego, wspiera wypracowanie jego długofalowej wizji rozwoju, nie tylko wobec uwarunkowań europejskich, ale również globalnych megatrendów energetycznych – wskazują eksperci Forum Analiz Energetycznych w opracowaniu.

Realising Europe’s Efficiency Pipeline

By Edith Bayer

Energy efficiency, particularly in buildings, should be a front-running strategy to address European energy security. Buildings account for about 40 percent of energy use and more than a third of natural gas use in Europe. Energy efficiency can be viewed as a “pipeline” that delivers reliable, cost-effective services, just like a natural gas pipeline delivers...
