Electric Vehicles for Smarter Cities: The Future of Energy and Mobility

This report examines the major trends affecting the transformation of energy and mobility systems, with a special focus on cities. Topics addressed include: electrification, decentralization and digitalization of the energy system, along with the shift towards electric, shared and autonomous mobility.




The Masdar report on technologies for future smart city transit

This study, launched by Masdar at the 2018 Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, comes at a time of significant technology progress as well as interest from public institutions and private entities in tackling challenges faced by urban transport. The report is valuable reading for city planners, technology strategists, transport operators and any enthusiast interested in learning how emerging technologies can shape the future of smart city transit.



Roadmap to 2025 Well-Functioning Retail Energy Markets

This paper provides a guide for National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) on how to proceed in the coming years in their path toward achieving well-functioning retail energy markets. It outlines key steps, namely, using the 2017 CEER Handbook for National Energy Regulators to self-assess, using key metrics (via data collection). This is accompanied by workshops and tailor-made training sessions organised by CEER. This is to be followed by updates and continuing self-assessment and gap analysis. The formulation of recommendations based on this gap analysis and the implementation of these recommendations are the next key steps in making progress on these goals to 2025. Annexes to the document contain the initial self-assessment of 22 NRAs to 25 key metrics chosen by CEER.



2017 Handbook for National Energy Regulators: How to assess retail market functioning

This CEER Handbook has been developed as a practical guide for national regulatory authorities in the process of evaluating the performance of their national retail energy markets. By providing a clear description and purpose of each metric as well as information on how to quantify the metric and the source of data, the Handbook facilitates energy regulators’ assessment of their retail markets. In addition, the pilots performed by energy regulators, which are released along with the Handbook, will give energy regulators an insight and examples into the practical usability of the metrics. CEER invites national energy regulatory authorities to use this Handbook and the accompanying pilots in order to self-assess their national retail markets.



Frequency Control Requirements for Reliable Interconnection Frequency Response

The purpose of this study is to support policymaker and industry understanding of the physical requirements for reliable interconnection frequency response—which is the collective ability of the power system to respond to sudden loss events, such as the loss of a large generator.
The study, which builds on an earlier study for FERC conducted in 2010, presents eleven findings and a set of six recommendations for industry to consider in evaluating options for maintaining reliable interconnection frequency response in the future. Some of the recommendations include better data collection and modeling, review of international practices, and increased research to foster adoption of non-traditional sources of primary frequency control, such as electronically coupled generation, energy storage, and demand response.
