#FSRGlobalForum

The FSR Global Forum is a 4-day event fostering practice-oriented solutions on key aspects of the world energy transition. It provides a platform for multi-stakeholder engagement to facilitate transnational knowledge exchange.

It brings together 100 representatives (by invitation only) from government agencies, regulatory bodies, energy companies, energy utilities, development organisations and academics from across the world.


The Forum develops around 12 knowledge spaces to facilitate interactive discussions and digitally maps the key insights of each session. The topical issues addressed have a special focus on Latin America, Africa and Asia.

                                    This knowledge space looks at the instruments and institutions that are needed to address the viability gap in massive electrification; i.e., the difference between cost of service and what is affordable.

                                    It discusses how guarantee can be provided for future investors to help scale up their solutions.

                                    This knowledge space explores if regulated electricity tariffs should be abolished in competitive retail markets, and to what extent this is required to introduce a well-functioning retail market where there is none.

                                    This knowledge space will discuss the feasibility of the “Integrated Distribution Company” model, or zonal franchise, as the suitable solution to achieve universal electricity access, and what policies and regulatory frameworks would have to be introduced to make it successful.

                                    This knowledge space aims to identify the technical and organizational characteristics needed to enhance network resilience that can cope with the new operating conditions.

                                    It questions if the benefits of network resilience are sufficiently considered in cost-benefit analyses or if specific financial or regulatory tools should be introduced to develop better network resilience.

                                    Despite the adoption of the Paris Agreement and very recently the Katowice Rulebook, the share of global energy supply provided by oil, gas, shale gas and coal is expected to remain substantial and stable. In several non-EU countries the consumption of conventional fuels, including natural gas, is even foreseen to increase in the coming years. IEA scenarios for Europe also see some continuing role for fossil fuels (see IEA World Energy Outlook 2018).

                                    Nevertheless, the current debate in the EU is increasingly focusing on biogas, biomethane, hydrogen and other “green gases” as enablers of the long-term energy transition towards a fully decarbonised EU energy sector. In this context, the intermittent nature of renewable electricity production and the ambition to reach a share of 50% or above of wind and solar in the EU generation mix by 2030, invite reflection on the role of these “gases” versus the conventional natural gas and in the overall EU energy mix, in the short-to-medium term.

                                    The development of alternative generation sources to fossil fuels is strongly encouraged at EU level by the European Commission, which has in the recent past incentivised the generation of clean energy from wind, solar and other renewable electricity sources. Will it be the case also for renewable gas sources? And which “renewable gases”, which processes and installations are worth being financially supported?

                                    Few pilot projects are already demonstrating the potential of current technology in helping the optimisation of energy production with a reduced (sometimes minimum) environmental impact. In this roundtable, we will discuss some concrete data and projects and we will try to understand where we are in the “journey towards a decarbonised gas sector”.

                                    Concept

                                    Different contexts call for different specific short- and medium-term objectives, which will be duly taken into account in the discussion.

                                    In developed countries, top of the agenda is the facilitation of more distributed energy systems capable to support electrification, including in the transport sector, with smart solutions leading to better energy efficiency and higher penetration of carbon-free energy sources also through a more active engagement of final customers, both residential and industrial.

                                    In emerging countries, access to reliable electricity is a priority in vast areas. The role distribution can play in that respect is still largely unexplored. Examples of best practices do exist, but business models suitable for relatively energy-poor areas are still to be consolidated.

                                    In order for DSOs to be able to play their fundamental role in every context the point is ultimately an appropriate regulatory framework and business models capable of ensuring adequate remuneration of needed investments.

                                    Format

                                    The discussion will be moderated and unfold around two proposed main themes, which will be each introduced by one or two invited speakers. Plenty of time will be ensured for discussion among all participants.

                                    Concept

                                    Policy makers in the European Union have set ambitious decarbonization goals for the power sector. Consequently, the continuing rise of renewables is leading to an increase in the need of flexibility.

                                    In the past, centralized, dispatchable generation provided flexibility at the transmission level for managing system balancing. However, the rise in prosumers, EVs, storage and other distributed energy resources has changed the paradigm of system balancing. Bidirectional flows are leading to more operational uncertainty at the distribution level. However, these resources along with greater demand response can become a valuable source of flexibility for the grid and become an additional source of revenue. Considering diversity and granularity of potential flexibility providers, there is a clear need to consider viable mechanisms to unlock the full potential of these services.

                                    One of them could be the use of market-based mechanisms. In this perspective, power exchanges can play an important role in organizing flexibility market platforms, to simplify access to the market, facilitate an efficient and secure allocation process and to avoid the fragmentation of flexibility supply. Power exchanges could play a pivotal role in three crucial respects:

                                    • managing interaction among TSOs, DSOs and flexibility providers;
                                    • ensure efficient transparent trading;
                                    • ensuring a smooth integration of such platforms in the cascade of already existing markets.

                                    There are already some initiatives, both in Europe and in the USA, aiming at establishing and integrating such flexibility market platforms. In the roundtable, representatives from power exchanges will present how they are answering to the flexibility demand.

                                    Design the electricity market(s) of the future

                                    Proceedings from the Eurelectric-Florence School of Regulation Conference, 7 June 2017 The profound transformation of the European electricity system is putting the design of the electricity markets that emerged during the restructuring of the 1990s and early 2000s into question. The need for decarbonisation and the wave of innovation in ICT are affecting the optimal functioning of those markets. New options, such as the ‘privatisation’ of service reliability, are becoming a reality, while some of the solutions adopted in the past, such as the reliance on day-ahead energy-only wholesale markets based on marginal pricing, are no longer sustainable. These changes call for a rethinking of the way markets are built within the EU. This is a fundamental step which academics, practitioners and policy-makers have to make together if they want to provide the conditions for long-term investments, integrate a growing amount of renewable energy sources efficiently and securely, and ensure the active participation of customers and communities at the local level.

                                    “Electricity” (electric energy) is a homogeneous commodity. In principle, the nature of this commodity is unaffected by scale, i.e., the same product, namely electromagnetic energy carried over a network, is delivered to large, energy-intensive factories and small consumers in other parts of the system.
