We collected valuable lessons from stakeholder interaction in our TradeRES Iberian Stakeholders’ Workshop: Electricity markets with high shares of renewables

Last friday, the first part of our workshop (Session A) was policy-oriented, covering the conceptual discussion of market design options and a presentation of our latest modelling results. The second part (Session B) was oriented for energy system modelers, offering a hands-on experience with the tools employed and enhanced in the project—Spine Toolbox, MASCEM, and RESTrade. We asked for your professional assessment and advice on further development of these tools. The second part culminated with a wrap-up session (Session C) discussing strengths and weaknesses, and future challenges. The two parts were independent of each other—feel free to join either or both parts of the workshop, depending on your interests and expertise.
