Incentives for industrial loads to provide demand response on day-ahead and reserve markets are affected both by network tariffs, as well as regulations on the provision of flexibility in different markets. This paper uses a numerical model of the chlor-alkali process with a storable intermediate good to investigate how these factors affect the provision of demand response in these markets. We also ...

Poland is the largest hard coal and second largest lignite producer in the EU, generating around 80 percent of its electricity from coal.

Their opposition centres around the prospect of losing their business, ...
