European Commission State Aid Investigation of Planned Polish Capacity Market

1 minute read


In 2017, the joint Compass Lexecon and FTI Consulting Energy team provided economic advice to the Polish transmission system operator, PSE, in the European Commission State aid investigation of the planned Polish capacity market.

Based on our proprietary European power markets dispatch model, we audited the adequacy analysis and the market model developed by PSE to justify the necessity of a capacity remuneration mechanism. In parallel, we evaluated the participation of interconnections to this mechanism, taking account of the specificity of Poland regarding unscheduled flows.

The team included Fabien Roques, Dmitri Perekhodtsev, Francesco Astolfi, Yves Le Thieis, and Bernardo Sarmento.

A new version of Compass Lexecon is available.
