Annual Report on the Results of Monitoring the Internal Electricity and Natural Gas Markets in 2017 – Electricity Wholesale Markets Volume

The Market Monitoring Report (MMR), which is in its seventh edition, consists of four volumes, respectively on: Electricity Wholesale Markets, Gas Wholesale Markets, Electricity and Gas Retail Markets, and Consumer Protection and Empowerment.
The goal of the Electricity Wholesale Markets Volume is to present the results of the monitoring of the performance of the internal electricity market in the European Union (EU), which depends on how efficiently the European electricity network is used and on the performance of electricity wholesale markets in all timeframes.
When electricity wholesale markets are integrated via sufficient interconnector capacity, then competition will benefit all consumers, improve energy system adequacy and ensure security of supply in the long term.
