Construction of the European electricity market

The reinforcement of the European electricity market is central to meeting EU’s policy objectives of affordability, sustainability and security of supply. A competitive market benefits not only to those acting in the energy sector but also to the entire society and economy.

The Elia Group develops its transmission infrastructure for keeping a high level of security of electricity supply at the best possible price, for the integration of rapidly growing shares of electricity from renewables and to provide a sound platform for competition.

The Elia Group also contributes to the evolution of European and national market rules in order to ensure a level playing field for all market players while mastering the challenges of the energy revolution.
