Study on the quality of electricity market data, supply disruptions and their impact on the European electricity markets
The study, covering all of the 28 EU Member states, is focussed on the quality of electricity market data, supply disruptions and their impact on the European electricity markets and the everyday life of citizens and business in the EU. Concern for security of supply is quite widespread across Member states. Therefore the study aimed at providing knowledge about the extent of disruptions across the EU Member states and the overall loss to society from such disruptions.
The main findings can be summarised in the following points:
In 2016 an estimated amount of 13 TWh electricity was not produced due to generation outages
It is estimated that in the EU in total approximately 600-850 GWh of electricity is not supplied to consumers in each year
In the EU as a whole, disruptions were estimated to result in a loss to consumers of approximately 10 to 25 billion EUR annually in the period 2010 to 2014
