WG C5-22 (The Management of Systemic Market Risk in Electricity Markets)

This working group will collect information from various markets on the way in which systemic market risk is approached. The broad approach will be to assess:

– Is there a systemic risk in your market?

– How is the systemic risk addressed?

– Is a central counterparty or clearing house the solution?

– What other methods could be used to mitigate the risk?

The outcomes will be an assessment of the overall approaches which have been adopted and an attempt to categorise approaches and link these to basic market, cultural or geographic parameters.
