ESMIG has responded to the consultation on the reform of the EU Electricity Market Design. The revision is a great opportunity to recogonise the potential of smart energy solutions for savings, and notably for demand-side flexibility and energy security. As a key element of future electricity markets and systems, we gladly welcome the active participation of consumers.
Smart energy solutions are a key enabler for both accelerating the green energy transition and making energy more secure and affordable for consumers and accelerating the roll-out of electricity smart meters and setting new ambitious deployment targets is a crucial element to build a more resilient EU electricity market, especially considering that the EU’s targets for an 80% roll-out of smart meters by 2020 was missed.
To ensure that active consumers and demand-side flexibility (DSF) are at the core of the reform of the EU’s electricity market design, we highlight some key actions that are required.
