Preliminary scope of work in English
Research question and motivation
The growing share of renewable energy sources and self-suppliers in the system is changing energy markets, which raises questions about optimal electricity tariffs as reflected by the attempt of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) to introduce new tariffs in 2016.
The aim of this thesis is to propose possible electricity tariffs suitable for the Czech Republic reflecting the need for incorporation of an increasing share of self-suppliers in the system in the long run. The thesis will provide welfare and distribution analysis of proposed tariffs.

The thesis will show possible changes in the near future on the electricity market due to new and altered tariffs. It will also show impact of these changes on welfare and distribution. Furthermore, ERO and energy suppliers might use proposed tariffs as a hint for adjusting their tariff settings in response to changes of energy sources and growing number of self-suppliers.

The electricity tariffs will be constructed similarly as in Brown et al. (2015) using simple tariff design model constructed on a set of parameters describing network usage across a small number of prototypical customers and hypothetical network costs. Standard welfare and distribution analysis will be provided based on Romero-Jordán et al. 2016 using methods such as Quantile Regression, Equivalent Variation and others.
