      Debruyne, Marion; Meeus, Leonardo; Hadush, Samson Yemane (2017)
      This is part of a case series. The aim of this three part teaching case is to stimulate discussion on how companies can adopt new business models to survive sector-wide transitions by taking the perspective of energy network companies which often operate under a highly regulated environment.

    • Assessment of a market coupling implementation based on price differences

      Cole, S.; Meeus, Leonardo; Belmans, Ronnie (2006)
      Eager to test the hypothesis that the crisis of 2008 exerted significant impact on the way companies manage their IT, we invited a selections of high-profile companies to participate in a study. We targeted companies that were seriously hit by the crisis but nevertheless were displaying best practices in managing their IT against this background. We interviewed eighteen CIOs and ten of the CFOs of those same companies about the way they were dealing with IT management in the current crisis.
    • Assessment of cost-benefit analysis for offshore electricity infrastructure development

      Bhagwat, Pradyumna; Schittekatte, Tim; Keyaerts, Nico; Meeus, Leonardo (2017)
      The application of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for offshore electricity infrastructure projects with a pan-European impact is discussed. An analytical framework for the evaluation of CBA methodologies is presented. The framework is then applied to assess the CBAs of three offshore infrastructure projects (EWIC, COBRAcable and ISLES). Overall, the CBAs assessed already comply with several dimensions of the analytical framework. However, based on this assessment it is found that scope for improvement in quality exists in three areas namely, in considering project interactions, in dealing with uncertainty and in making the results between CBAs comparable by ensuring full monetisation. Furthermore, the research also confirms the view that a common harmonised CBA methodology is essential for selection of PCIs.

    • Asymmetry of information and demand response incentives in energy markets

      Ramos, Ariana; De Jonghe, Cedric; Six, Daan; Belmans, Ronnie (2013)
      The price set in electricity markets is given by the intersection of supply and demand during a given time period. The demand-side has traditionally been a price taker while the supply-side actively adjusts the output of the market clearing unit to fluctuations in consumption. Currently, there is a transition toward active demand participation that can adequately respond to market conditions. However, private knowledge of demand adjustments, such as the impact of modifying behavior or the availability to do so, creates asymmetry of information between the active supply side and the passive demand. This paper proposes a revelation mechanism that will prompt the demand-side to choose the best option for themselves among a menu of incentives. Rational behavior of consumers implies that demand will only shift when the benefit of doing so is higher than the costs of modifying consumption patterns. Given differences among demand participants and the objectives of the market operator, an analysis of the rationale of each market agent shows the feasible options for demand incentives. This study enables the design of appropriate market mechanisms aimed to discover customer categories and determine the adequate incentives for each case.

    • Cross-border cost allocation: application of beneficiary pays principle to electricity transmission investments

      Hadush, Samson Yemane (2014)
      Massive electricity transmission investments are needed to achieve the energy and climate policy objectives of the European Union. The alignment of national and European interests remains the key challenge behind the realization of these investments. This thesis contributes to the design of efficient cross-border cost allocation solution as one of the regulatory tools that can play a significant role in aligning these interests. Trends in practice indicate the application of beneficiary pays principle to solve the cost allocation problem. Within the academic circle, this has been the long standing core principle of solving cost allocation problems. However, its application to cross-border electricity transmission investments with a strong national decision-making power is not widely studied. This thesis reviews various cost allocation methods to check their suitability to apply this principle. The findings indicate that these methods leave open questions regarding which benefit indicators to use for allocating the investment cost and how compensation issues are handled. Therefore, a framework to apply the beneficiary pays principle is required. Introducing transmission investments from a welfare analysis perspective, the thesis develops a framework to apply the beneficiary pays principle to solve the cost allocation problem. An important element of this framework is the use of congestion revenue as part of the solution. The design involves using congestion revenue in a compensation logic to ensure voluntary cooperation among participating countries. The designed framework is then applied in the context of two important developments in transmission investments in Europe: Projects of Common Interest (PCI) and offshore wind interconnection projects. The results show that the framework can help align national and European interests in projects with European relevance. Moreover, important implementation issues are identified.
