From 1 January 2016, producers of renewable electricity in France will have to sell their electricity on the market, as a consequence of the new mechanism resulting from the energy transition law. This new mechanism replaces the purchasing obligation which required EDF to buy this electricity at a fixed price for fifteen or twenty years. This represents a profound change as the producers will have to organise themselves to sell their electricity on the market, although they will still benefit from a guaranteed price provided by a variable premium based on the difference between the market price and a reference tariff.
In order to address this evolution, Sven Rösner and Sam Street will explain the consequences of this new remuneration model, through the experiences in two countries: Germany and the UK.
