This Policy Brief argues that pursuing the renewables objective could contribute to the completion of the internal electricity market, help overcome opposition to transmission projects and decrease the market power of incumbents. Conversely, an integrated internal electricity market means less price volatility in specific regional markets, which allows for more efficient deployment and grid integration of renewables. Three sets of recommendations are proposed.
