The 10th annual Energija14

EnergyEventsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 4/2014

2-3 December 2014 in Opatija, Croatia

The energy market is undergoing a dramatic change. New technologies and political determination are opening up new opportunities and perspectives. For South East Europe the energy sector is the key to regional economic growth and increasing prosperity.

The completion of Internal Energy Market is still underway. In SE Europe on the hand the regional electricity trading landscape has been slowly transforming through introduction of power exchanges, through improved integration of renewable energy sources and most of all through market coupling processes. The market coupling borders are moving, price coupling of regions projects are on the way.

On the downstream side of the energy supply value chain there is the end consumer, whose role on the energy market is changing more than ever. These and other similar issues, such as the impact on SEE of price developments in the European markets, the role of countries in the context of increased regulation and state aid issue, the consequence of emerging capacity remuneration mechanisms in the face of regulated prices for consumers, the new business models on the retail side and the challenge for individual countries to establish an investment climate will be discussed at the International Conference Energija14

All the topics will be discussed mainly from the perspective of SE Europe but through a global experience by the high-level experts and decision-makers, leading representatives of European Institutions, Utilities, TSOs, traders and power exchanges from SE Europe and beyond.
Energija14 provides a platform for information exchange, in which decision-makers of the energy industry and politics discuss challenges, investment opportunities and future trends.

This Year’s Topics
The five key topics we will address this year are:
• The Introduction of Capacity Remuneration Mechanisms
• SEE Trading Perspectives in time of Market
Coupling
• Customer Perspectives: prices and new business models
• The Investment climate in SE Europe
• Energy Affordability and state aid issues

All the topics will be discussed mainly from the perspective of SE Europe but through global experience. The event will address for instance the impact on SEE of price developments in the European markets, the role of states in the context of increased regulation, the consequence of emerging capacity remuneration mechanisms in the face of regulated prices for consumers, and the challenge for individual states to establish an investment climate - which would not introduce additionally asymmetric conditions among the countries - is becoming tougher.

”At last year’s event we intensively debated the Capacity Market prospects however this year we already have the concrete solutions, also the first ideas in the SE Europe. How will such models work in the region? How will it affect the market or its prices?

The regional electricity trading landscape is additionally transforming through introduction of power exchanges, through improved integration of renewable energy sources and most of all through market coupling processes. The market coupling borders are moving, price coupling of regions projects are on the way. These challenging issues will be discussed by the leading representatives of TSOs, power exchanges and traders.

On the downstream side of the energy supply value chain there is the end consumer, whose role on the energy market is changing more than ever. Consumer’s engagement and the introduction of new business models in the energy retail are going to be of most significance for the retailers.

New business models, including smart energy offerings, are already creating a whole new market environment in some most developed and competitive national markets. What will be the future drivers for customers’ loyalty, are the new entrants going to take over the business or will the incumbent retailers be able to keep the market position?”, stated the organizers.

This years’ conference, the 10th consecutive Energija14, will take place on December 2nd and 3rd 2014 in the beautiful Croatian coast town Opatija, in a 5-star Hotel Ambasador.
