At the seminar a special study will be presented describing electricity market models in a number of regions in the USA, Canada and the UK.

Pennsylvania and the UK have decided to introduce capacity markets. There is also the traditional “energy only” market where electricity prices are set based on the marginal cost of the last kilowatt hour. Ontario, California and Georgia all have regulated electricity markets which instead involve long-term planning.

We will hear a presentation of the study by Harald Klomp, Uppsala Engineering Partner. Comments on the report will be provided by Maria Sunér Fleming, Chairman of the Electricity Crossroads Usage work group and Mats Nilsson, Senior Advisor at Swedenergy.

IVA’s project Electricity Crossroads is producing reports to inform Sweden’s energy policy. The project consists of six work groups: Usage, Production, Distribution & Transmission, Climate & Environment, Public Finances & Markets, and Energy Policy.
