Stabilisation of the European Power Market
On 24 February 2015 a further step towards an integrated European power market was put into place. Effective coupling was done for the Italian-Austrian, Italian-French and Italian-Slovenian borders. This full price coupling allows the simultaneous calculation of electricity prices and cross-border flows across the region. It is expected that the coupling will bring benefits for end-consumers derived from a more efficient use of the power system and cross-border infrastructures as a consequence of a stronger coordination between energy markets.
