Discussions on REMA: Splitting the wholesale market

5 Oct 2023 | Lectures & webinars

Following on from their first REMA seminar in May where Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) was discussed, BIEE held a second seminar on Tuesday 26 September to discuss another of the Government’s proposed electricity market reforms – splitting the wholesale market in an aim to reduce the proportion of electricity sold for a gas-based price.

The seminar was held through a discussion between two guest speakers, Professor Michael Grubb and UKERC Director Professor Rob Gross, on how this could be achieved and the implications this would have for generators, suppliers and consumers.
