REMIT Compliance for Wholesale Energy Markets virtual conference explores challenges brought by REMIT and its consequences on wholesale energy markets, current and future issues in REMIT adoption and compliance, key aspects of REMIT after BREXIT, the best practices of REMIT compliance in the sense of compliance regime development, market abuse avoiding mechanisms, inside information management, and algorithmic trading solutions.
REMIT sets a strong regulatory framework to establish a trustworthy, safe, and well-functioning environment for wholesale energy markets. To ensure REMIT requirements are fulfilled by market participants, National regulatory authorities in cooperation with the Agency for Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) may exercise their powers of investigation, enforcement, and penalization in the case of breaches of REMIT. However, neither REMIT nor ACER or any other regulatory authority provides any set of requirements or an action plan on how to comply with REMIT obligations. Therefore, assuring compliance with REMIT regulations is quite challenging for market participants.
In the given scenario, we believe, benchmarking and experience sharing among market participants will most likely help to develop and/or improve already designed compliance regimes.
