EMART Energy 2016 – for must-have insight and new ways of thinking

Our Advisory Board and our cooperation with EFET, and their working groups, are your warranty for an independent, original and well-balanced agenda.

This year it entails four separate conference streams, all consisting of independent strategic sessions, in depth presentations and the popular hub debates. Besides, there are two plenary sessions;  that are platforms for two of the main themes, the sector is dealing with.

The programme is being developed against the backdrop of a sector that is reinventing itself while being faced with a wide array of external factors impacting the business. Renewables are absorbing an increasing share of the energy mix and this fact has impacted wholesale prices permanently. Regulatory constraints are creating insecurity and are a growing burden to the sector. At the same time there are many technological changes, LNG is now arriving in Europe, Brexit and the current geopolitical issues are driving us towards a new era.

We are proud to present to you a strong list of speakers who represent leading trading firms, industry associations, the regulators, power and gas exchanges, knowledgeable consultants and the TSOs. Below is a sneak preview of the strategic sessions.

Strategic sessions

Featuring a session on power prices drivers, one on security of supply, flexibility and CRM and one on DSR, Aggregation & Storage, the Power trading stream will engage in market design, price formation and a look into new developments and how they (could) relate to trading. The following senior experts confirmed to speak in this session:

  • Mark Lewis, Managing Director and Head of Utilities at Barclays
  • Jan Ahrens, Business Director Carbon Market Analytics, ICIS Tschach Solutions
  • Yolanda Garcia Mezquita, European Commission, DG Energy - Unit B4
  • Eberhard Röhm-Malcotti, Head of EU Energy Policy, Axpo Services AG
  • Pieter Schell, Chair of the Aggregator Task Force, SEDC and VP Regulatory Affairs, Restore

With EMART being held in Amsterdam an entire session of the gas trading stream will be dedicated to gas hubs, especially to TTF and NBP. Now that the UK voted for a Brexit, analysts are writing scenarios about the impact on liquidity at these hubs. With LNG finally arriving in Europe we will be wondering what effect this will have on gas prices, what LNG trading entails and what regulatory arrangements need to be made. The geopolitical circumstances require a separate session on the future of gas. Please have a look to find out which speakers already confirmed to join this session:

  • Bert den Ouden, Managing Director, Energy at Berenschot and former CEO of APX
  • Rocio Prieto, Gas Director, Spanish regulator CNMC
  • Andrea Selvaggi, MD - Global Head of Commodities, Unicredit
  • Doug Wood, Member of the EFET Board

MiFIDII, REMIT and MAR will be followed with interest around EMART. There will be discussion about the exemption regime for commodities, new market structure under MiFIDII, the role of OTFs and how MAR will help detect potential abuses. Only the real experts of this rather complicated regulation will present in these sessions – make sure not to miss out on your annual update:

  • Riccardo Rossi, Regulatory Affairs Manager, Gazprom Marketing & Trading
  • Jasper Jorritsma, Senior Policy Advisor, Authority Financial Markets
