In our first white paper in this series, we discussed how central markets and the deployment of smart grid applications are reshaping the energy market. We saw how the energy market is more dynamic than it has ever been in the past. Subsequently, we considered how the energy market is shifting in two ways. First, harmonization of the energy market is leading to the centralization of market processes, improving transparency and lowering entry barriers for new entrants. Second, renewable energy production and consumption are shifting the market to decentralization. Today, market facilitation is poised for its next stage of growth, and these two seemingly contradictive trends are driving its transformation. In our second white paper, we look at the current transition reshaping the energy market and how the changing role of market facilitation is creating new market designs to support this energy transition.
