On December 12, 2012, RAP Senior Associate Andreas Jahn addressed an open forum held by the Green Party on capacity markets at the Federal Parliament building. Based on experience with capacity markets in the United States, this presentation explores the value of demand response in competitive markets. This method of load management has great potential to facilitate renewable integration at low cost and high reliability. Mr. Jahn also took an in-depth look at the design features of an apportioned capacity market, which could be coupled with an enhanced services market.
