3rd Annual Energy Cross-Border Trading and Balancing Market Forum

Addressing Major Distortions to Efficient Cross-Border Trade

11th - 12th January, Prague

Other challenges, such as troubling transmission congestion, locational price spikes, dependability of maintaining system or efficiency of market – these all creates uncertainties in the energy industry.

It becomes important to address remaining major distortions to efficient cross-border trade and what needs to be done about them. Different approaches to network charges, congestion management, balancing, caps on spot prices has to be analyzed at various levels.
