ESTELA and all of ASPIRE members welcome the European Commission’s proposal on the Electricity Market Design and its focus on creating favourable market conditions to boost investment in our essential technologies which provide stable and predictable supplies of renewable electricity to accelerate the replacement of the use of fossil fuels. Our Secretary General Bérénice Crabs highlights that this proposal finally puts a value on system adequacy and flexibility that will incentivise investment in concentrated solar and other renewable energy technologies.

The full position paper is available here.

ESTELA is a founding member of ASPIRE, a coalition of concentrated solar thermal, geothermal, hydro and ocean energy technologies providing secure, indigenous and predictable renewable electricity.
