  • Get RES auctions right: Key design elements in RES auctions – focus on emerging markets: Instruments to ensure sufficient competition, Risk mitigating measures; Aures Designer tool of RES auction – hands on session; Turkish case study – Capacity allocation, RE-zone tenders, auction experiences; Group Work II: Auction exercise – how to build up your bidding strategy?
