2129415 : New CEPS Energy Climate House report on electricity market design and
long-term price signals
Dear Mr. Cañete,
Please find attached the most updated version of the report on "The EU power sector needs long-
term price signals". The version attached to the email sent this morning was not the final version.
Apologies for any confusion this may cause.
On 4 May 2016 at 11:56,
At the "Roundtable on energy market design and regulation during the transition to low-carbon
generation" on 18th February, I mentioned our forthcoming report on "long-term price signals". It is
my pleasure to attach a copy of the report entitled "The EU power sector needs long-term price
signals" for your attention. The report has just been published and can also be downloaded
The focus of this report is how to strengthen price signals to incentivise commercially-driven
investments in the power sector, in the absence of strong steering by the ETS. The report
examines the case for long-term price signal to reduce capital costs, allowing for a more efficient
energy transition and at the same time securing future supply.
We would be happy to discuss some of the finer points of the report with you and your
Cabinet. We will also undertake extensive outreach activities in Brussels and in member states to
discuss the issue.
