The European electricity market is one of the largest in the world in terms of its size and the volumes of electricity traded. It is divided into bidding zones in which consumers pay an identical price for electricity. This partition and the security of supply is regularly assessed by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), which is advised by a panel of international experts on adjustments required by energy policy. Recently, Dr. Martin Weibelzahl from the University of Bayreuth was appointed as a member.
