Bidding zone split for Germany. A sneak preview into our study

The renewables buildout in Germany is starting to pick up momentum again. While this is positive news for Germany’s climate ambition, it will also exacerbate strains on the power grid and increase curtailment of renewable energy. Moreover, the expected rise in electricity demand, from the electrification of industry or new consumers like electrolysers, potentially calls for more regionalised price signals. One prominently debated instrument is a bidding zone split, dividing Germany into multiple power price regions.

During this public webinar, we will give a sneak preview of our latest study on this topic. It will cover the following key questions:

  • What could different configurations of bidding zones look like and how do they affect the power market?
  • What are the key uncertainties for the impact of a bidding zone split?
  • What implications would a bidding zone split have on the production of green hydrogen in Germany?
  • What cost differences would emerge for the energy-intensive industry and other power consumers?
