Welcome from Mr. Claude Mandil, Executive Director, IEA and Mr. Luis Echávarri, Director-General, NEA
This session set out the size of the investment required and the general question of how power generation in electricity markets is to take place.
This session considered investment in electricity markets in the context of current market designs and incentives for investment, the new modelling frameworks for investment.
This session drew on experience of investors in different technologies in different markets as how their investments or technologies have been affected by the liberalised markets. Presenters were asked to cite main investment risks and how these have been affected by liberalisation.
Certain governments are undertaking specific policies to enhance diversification/security of supply in electricity markets. How successful are these approaches and what impact do they have on the structure and operation of the electricity market?
