Public Consultation on the Design Note Consumer Centric Market Design
Public consultation of the stakeholders on the design note related to the consumer centric market design.
The future will be defined by a rapid increase in renewables and a huge electrification of industrial and residential appliances, both driven by the energy transition and the current energy crisis.
In this regard, ELIA calls for an optimized market design, the Consumer-Centric Market Design ("CCMD"), dealing with this significant challenge in terms of integration into the system. Furthermore, the ELIA Adequacy Flex Study 2021 clearly identifies the growing needs for flexibility to manage the intermittency of renewable energy sources and to deal with the electrification of many residential and industrial appliances.
ELIA is convinced that the keys to unleash further flexibility consist in giving an active role to the consumer, at all voltage levels while keeping its participation seamless, and in providing easy-access to digital platforms to support Energy Service Providers in the development of (new) energy services for the consumer.
The stakeholders are kindly requested to provide their comments and suggestions. The reactions can be provided to Elia via the form below. The feedback is expected at the latest by Friday 20th of January 2023.
After the consultation period, Elia will collect all comments and feedback from the market parties. Elia will analyze these comments and will discuss them in the next working group CCMD. In case your contribution is to be treated as confidential, please mention it in your answer.
