Smart market designs for the global energy transition

Market design is still very much determined and restricted by concerns regarding the security and quality of the energy supply. But how justified are these concerns in an age of ever-increasing digitalisation, despite the current limitations of existing grid and ICT infrastructure? And are these concerns rooted more in persistent and antediluvian patterns of thought inherited from the old centralist, hierarchical and exclusive energy world than founded on the actual limitations of grid and ICT infrastructure?
In addition, this session will address the inherent risks of new technologies for the energy transition, for example, new monopolies and new (digital) barriers that might exclude small-scale stakeholders like prosumers from engaging in a profitable way in the energy markets of the future.
