[en] July 19, 1999, the Netherlands Electricity Regulatory Service ('Dienst uitvoering en toezicht elektriciteitswet Dte) issued the consultation document 'Price-cap regulation in the electric power sector'. The document is strongly based on a modern, UK inspired method of regulation. The methods, as proposed in the document, will have an impact on the final electricity tariffs, and thus of great importance for the consumers and the businesses involved. In this article the most striking element in the consultation document is discussed: how to determine the X (i.e. the expected growth of the productivity) in the price-cap regulation
[en] The electricity market in Germany is likely to undergo several significant structural changes over the years to come. Here one may think of Germany's ambitious renewable agenda, the disputed decommissioning of nuclear facilities, but also unbundling of TSO's as enforced by European regulation. This study is a scenario-based analysis of the impact of different realizations of known investment plans for transmission and generation capacity on the future German power market while accounting for internal congestion. For this analysis the static equilibrium model of the European electricity market COMPETES is deployed, including a 10-node representation of the German highvoltage grid. Results for the multi-node analysis indicate that price divergence and congestion are likely to arise in the German market as renewable additions affecting mainly the North of Germany, the debated decommissioning of nuclear facilities in the South, and the expected decommissioning of coal-fired facilities in Western Germany appear to render current investment plans for transmission capacity insufficient. The current system of singlezone pricing for the German market may therewith be compromised. However, transmission additions would not benefit all market parties, with producers in exporting regions and consumers in importing regions being the main beneficiaries. Vertical unbundling of German power companies could increase the incentive for constructing transmission lines if generation capacity would cause Germany to be a net-importing country. In case Germany remains a net-exporting country, the effects of vertical unbundling on cross-border capacity are less clear cut.
[en] An overview is given of the (dis)advantages from literature of merchant high-voltage power transmission lines. Subsequently attention is paid to the question whether BritNed (250 km long AC power cable between the UK and the Netherlands) is cost-effective or not and what that means for the price of electricity. Finally, some of the regulation problems are discussed
[nl]Een overzicht wordt gegeven van de voordelen en de nadelen uit de literatuur van merchant hoogspanningsverbindingen (handelslijnen). Vervolgens wordt aandacht besteed aan de vraag of BritNed (250 km lange onder water lopende gelijkstroomkabel tussen Engeland en Nederland) rendabel is en wat dat betekent voor de stroomprijs. Tenslotte worden enkele reguleringsvraagstukken besproken
