Assessment of electricity generation adequacy in European countries. CEER report.

 

Abstract:

This document (C13-ESS-32-03) is a CEER report on the assessment of generation adequacy in European countries. The European community is showing increasing interest in the ways generation adequacy is ensured in electricity markets, notably with increasing shares of variable generation. In July 2013, the CEER the Electricity Security of Supply Task Force (ESS TF) undertook an investigation of the ways assessments of generation adequacy are conducted in responsibility areas. An internal questionnaire was launched among CEER member and observer countries in order to establish an in-depth stock of the current practices for assessing generation adequacy in the Internal Electricity Market. This document provides an overview of responses to this questionnaire which includes some analysis and key findings in relation to the current national assessments of generation adequacy.
