The regulation of independent aggregators with a focus on compensation mechanisms
This study reviews and compares how independent aggregation is (or will be) regulated in selected European countries, in different markets. Independent aggregator models – uncorrected, central settlement and corrected models – are described, and how they are implemented in these countries. The main objective is to learn from their experiences and apply those lessons to the Nordics, that are in the process of drafting their own regulation. The whole regulation is addressed, but the focus is on the questions concerning compensation mechanisms.
DNV was commissioned to perform this study by Nordic Energy Research on behalf of the Electricity Market Group under the Nordic Council of Ministers.
