The Research Centre recently organised an event on the European LNG treminals.
Better Access to European LNG Terminals
10 of February, – 15:00 – 17:00 Online Workshop
There were more than 70 participants on the online workshop, many of them from outside Hungary.
At the online workshop we presented the main findings of the report (Study on Gas market upgrading and modernisation – Regulatory framework for LNG terminals) and discussed with regulators, market participants and researchers how frameworks of primary and secondary capacity allocation can assure transparent and non-discriminatory access to LNG terminals and the better utilization of their capacities.
Speakers of the workshop were:
- Łukasz Lisicki, Policy Officer at European Commission, DG ENER
- Christoph Riechmann, Director Energy Practice, Frontier Economics
- dr. Katja Yafimava, Senior Research Fellow, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies
- Rocio Prieto, Chair LNG TF, Council of European Energy Regulators, CEER
- François Leveillé, Seconded National Expert, ACER
- Arno Büx, GLE President, Chief Commercial Officer, Fluxys Group and Fluxys Belgium
- Doug Wood, Chairman of the Gas Committee, European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET)
- László Fritsch, Chief Executive Officer, Hungarian Gas Trade Ltd.
- Péter Kotek, Senior Research Associate, REKK

New Article contribution – Energies journal
Enikő Kácsor, external staff member of REKK, PhD student at the Doctoral School of Economics, Business and Informatics (Department of Mathematics), has a publication in the journal Energies, which work is based on her PhD thesis that analyses the bidding strategies of investors in the German photovoltaic auctions.
In this article renewable energy support allocation through different types of auctions are assessed. The applied methodological framework is auction theory, based on the rules governing the German photovoltaic (PV) Feed-in Premium (FIP) auctions. The work focuses on bidding strategies based on an extended levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) methodology, comparing two different set of rules: uniform price and pay-as-bid. When calculating the optimal bids an iteration is developed to find the Nash-equilibrium optimal bidding strategy.
The paper is available online.
