The future of electricity system operations within European regions

Achieving secure, sustainable and affordable electricity for consumers is high on the European Commission’s agenda. Their ambition is to form a single competitive energy market, facilitated by electricity flows that move efficiently across European borders. But how will this be achieved?

In this thought piece, we take a look at the changing face of Great Britain’s electricity system, and the development towards European regional markets. We use four fictional scenarios to explore the different options that Europe could take in the future, and consider the challenges and benefits that each path could bring.

We explore how consumers will benefit through continued cooperation with the European electricity system, even with the uncertainty to Great Britain’s future relationship with the EU that Brexit has brought.
