Based on levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) calculations, renewables appear to be competitive with a new lignite power plant (Kosova e Re) in Kosovo, even before considering non-market factors such as air...

Climate change is a challenge unprecedented in human history. Indeed, the current rate of global warming is almost unprecedented in geological history, and the window for limiting temperature rise to 1.5°C is closing rapidly. Staying below 1.5°C is still possible, but the chances of doing so are shrinking rapidly, and based on estimates by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC)...

The Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER) has proposed in its study on the future role of gas that a new mechanism should be defined to achieve the merger of trading hubs or markets currently managed by different TSOs. However, Europex, an association of European energy exchanges, thinks that the merging of markets should not be seen as a goal in itself, warning that market mergers do not...

The complexity and ongoing politicisation of the EU gas regulation “will persuade those wishing to bring additional gas to EU countries to do so as LNG rather than as pipeline gas”, wrote Jonathan Stern from the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES) in a preface to a new OIES paper published last week....

Electricity | Energy policy

“European TSOs are currently prioritising internal electricity exchanges, which means that cross-border power exchanges only get the leftovers. Instead we would like to see that internal exchanges are not a limiting factor in defining cross-border capacity,” Alberto Pototschnig, Director of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), told Energetika.NET on the sidelines of...
