Evaluation of alternative designs of short-term electricity markets

Short-term electricity markets (intraday, congestion management, balancing) will be increasingly relevant due to the integration of growing intermittent renewable energy source based generation (solar and wind). Also, new resources connected to the electricity distribution networks, such as electric vehicles, heat pumps or technologies that increase the level of flexibility of demand could participate in these markets, thus providing services to the electricity system. The research assistant will work on the regulatory proposal and assessment of improvements to the design of short-term markets to achieve a higher level of coordination among them and maximize the value that distributed energy resources provide to the electricity system. Part of the work will be developed on European and national projects in close collaboration with Spanish and European electricity companies.
