Dual Plenary Session A1, Title: Electricity Market Design(Monday, 19.8.2013 16:00 - 17:30)Rheinlandsaal A - Ground Floor
Due to the expansion of renewable energies existing power plants face decreasing power prices and declining capacity utilizationmaking them less profitable. To guarantee supply security the output of conventional power plants is still needed. This sessionwill address the further development of Energy-Only-Markets and the possible introduction of capacity mechanisms and markets for flexibilities. The discussion will cover alternative design options on an international and national scale and will focus on the interaction between electricity market designs and support mechanisms.

Dual Plenary Session A2, Title: European Gas Markets Towards New Pricing Arrangements(Monday, 19.8.2013 16:00 - 17:30)Rheinlandsaal B - Ground Floor
Long-term contracts have been playing a leading role in the European natural gas importing industry for a long time. With the liberalization of the European gas markets several hubs began to emerge and in the future it seems to be that the LNG-Market also driven by the shale gas boom in the US could be a game changer for the European gas pricing. Is therefore the dominant pricing model a thing of the past and what could be the new answer for gas pricing in Europe in the near future? The panel will try to figure out new pricing arrangements.

Dual Plenary Session B1, Title: Support Mechanisms for Low Carbon Technologies(Tuesday, 20.8.2013 09:00 - 10:30)Rheinlandsaal A - Ground Floor
The introduction of low carbon technologies is broadly recognized to require state support, but the extent and form of this support is highly controversial. This plenary session will address alternative instruments for promoting low carbon technologies, drawing on perspectives from academia, policy and business. The discussion will cover both market-based mechanisms (e.g. carbon taxes and emissions trading), technology-specific support schemes (e.g. feed-in-tariffs), and regulatory measures such as efficiency standards.

Dual Plenary Session B2, Title: Germany Energy Transformation(Tuesday, 20.8.2013 09:00 - 10:30)Rheinlandsaal B - Ground Floor
Germany has set itself ambitious objectives for rapidly transforming its electricity sector from a fairly balanced energy mix towards an energy mix mostly consisting of renewable energy sources. The session will explore the opportunities and challenges resulting from this bold turn in its energy strategy. Also, the panelists will discuss the various market design issues which arise from implementing such a fundamental transformation of the power sector.

Dual Plenary Session C1, Title: Long Term Planning of Infrastructures(Tuesday, 20.8.2013 14:00 - 15:30)Rheinlandsaal A - Ground Floor
The session discusses the challenges and experiences of long-term planning of energy infrastructures, from these three perspectives:
(i) Academic: what does recent research teach us, what models are being developed, is there a contradiction between state-of-the-art and state-of-practice in infrastructure planning, etc.
(ii) TSO: What are the key issues in longer-term infrastructure planning, technical, economic, social, acceptance, at the Danish, the Scandinavian, and the European level;
(iii) Consulting: What are the tools and approaches to longer-term planning, recent experiences from the consulting world on European, and TSO-specific planning processes (this talk will also refer to natural gas).
