On 28 April 2016 a joint CEER-IEA workshop was held in Paris to discuss cross-border electricity security of supply issues. The workshop brought together experts and practitioners to review regional experiences of electricity security of supply. The workshop included a discussion of assessment tools and the impacts of different market and network approaches on security of supply, taking account of changes such as more renewable generation. Examples from Europe, the United States, Australia and SE Asia were provided. The results of the workshop will feed into the IEA’s “Electricity Security Across Borders” publication and its work on electricity security more broadly.
The workshop in 2016 was one of already several jointly organised workshops. It is planned to continue such fruitful CEER-IEA cooperation in the future.
