On 23rd May, Dr LIU Yang, Senior Research Fellow at ESI, gave an invited keynote address at the workshop on “Intelligent market design – boosting global smart grid deployment”.  This is an official side-event of the 9th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM 9) held in Copenhagen and Malmo.

The CEM is a ministerial level global forum to promote policies and programs that advance clean energy technology, to share lessons learned and best practices, and to encourage the transition to a global clean energy economy. Together, the 24 countries and the European Commission that are members of the CEM account for about 90 percent of global clean energy investments and 75 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. They also fund the vast majority of public research and development in clean energy technologies.

Dr. LIU Yang delivered a keynote presentation on “Energy market design in the smart grid area”, followed by a roundtable discussion. As the outcome of the workshop, a policy document entitled “Opportunities to accelerate smart grid deployment through innovative market design” has been prepared for high-level discussion and communicated to CEM9 participants to stimulate an in-depth discussion and advance the market design agenda. The workshop was organised by International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) and Swedish Smart Grid Forum.

ISGAN is an initiative of the CEM and an IEA Technology Collaboration Programme with the vision to accelerate progress on key aspects of smart grid policy, technology, and related standards through voluntary participation by governments in specific projects and programs. The Swedish Smart Grid Forum is an initiative of the Swedish Government. The objective is to strengthen the capacity for smart grid solutions for the future, in Sweden and globally.
