This study analyses whether marginal pricing is worth to be introduced in the Hungarian balancing energy markets before MAVIR joins to the common European balancing energy platforms. Several methodological approaches (literature review, benchmark case studies, analysis of the Hungarian balancing energy market, scenario analysis) are used to assess the advantages, disadvantages and potential risks of marginal pricing. Additionally, the study also examines the potential effect of this pricing methodology on the related markets such as, day-ahead or intraday wholesale market or the balancing reserve market.
