Tools for the Design and modelling of new markets and negotiation mechanisms for a ~100% Renewable European Power Systems


The future electricity market needs to be adjusted to accommodate almost 100% renewables. Horizon2020-funded project, TradeRES, aims to find a new market design that can enable an efficient operation of resources in the short-term market, considering the high variability of solar and wind energy, increasing integration with the heating and transport sector, and increasing participation of flexible demand.

Project Description

The new market designs will be tested with agent-based models within an open-access simulation tool. The performance of the market design – with respect to quantitative indicators such as security of supply, average costs to consumers and investment cost recovery – will be compared to a benchmark calculation of an optimal power system.

Intended deliverables

The project will deliver descriptions of new market designs and evaluate their performance on Dutch case study. The project also delivers new tools for investigating new market designs. The tools are based on the methodology of model coupling and co-simulation.

Project Partners

LNEG, TNO, DLR, VTT, Imperial College London, ISEP, etc.
