The liberalization and the desired reduction in carbon emissions has put the structural change in the energy markets into motion. The liberalization has led, inter alia, that gas and electricity are traded on markets where the prices are determined by the marginal costs of different providers. The pursuit of emission reduction leads to investments in renewable energy and changes the use of fossil fuelled power plants.

The effect of these and possible new changes such as investments in (renewable) energy should be financially calculated thoroughly. Essential is using a top-down approach, viewed from the value chain and existing infrastructure, and compared with its alternatives.
