In Europe, transmission system operators (TSOs) operate markets for balancing power and transmission rights. In order to investigate the situation of these markets, a RIETI research group conducted a survey visit of European TSOs and their associations. This paper reports the results of the investigation, focusing on the following three points: 1. Domestic operation of balancing power markets 2. International coordination of operations of balancing power markets 3. Operation of the power transmission right markets: Furthermore, we derive implications for the design of the TSO markets in the course of Japan's electric power reform.
