The Market Design research programme was established in the year 2000 to improve understanding of how the liberalized Nordic electricity markets work and to facilitate knowledge exchange between industry, researchers and the authorities. It is Markets Designs ambition to support the development of the market instruments and the regulatory frameworks necessary to ensure that electricity is delivered reliably and at least cost. In our work, we focus not only on Sweden and the rest of the Nordic countries but also on international experience and debates.
Market Design runs in three-year periods. At the start of each period, Market Design's board decides on the research themes that will be prioritized during the forthcoming period. After a Call for Projects, the Board decides which projects to fund and sets out the research agenda.
Market Design is funded by the Swedish TSO Svenska Krafnät and several energy companies. To learn more about our sponsors, please click on the picture to the right.
