Ensuring sufficient generation capacity is a necessary condition for the safety of power system and the stability of power market. It is one of the core issues to be concerned in the development of power industry. With the global low-carbon energy transition, the adequacy of generation capacity of power system is facing severe challenges. Various capacity mechanisms have been implemented internationally to deal with relevant problems. Combined with the process of European energy transition and power market reform, this paper combs the construction background, development context and current situation of its capacity mechanism, focuses on the strategic reserve mechanism recommended in Regulation (EU) 2019/943, and introduces the implementation details of the mechanism in Finland, Germany and Belgium. Under the double carbon goal, China’s coal-fired power will change from the main power supply to the regulatory and supporting power supply, and there is an urgent need for capacity mechanism to ensure its safe and stable transformation. This paper combs the current situation and problems of China’s coal-fired power capacity mechanism, points out that the strategic reserve mechanism has good applicability, analyzes the key problems of implementing the mechanism, and provides decision-making reference for the construction of domestic capacity mechanism.

Key words: adequacy of generation capacity, strategic reserve mechanism, power market, capacity mechanism, energy transition
