Electricity market coupling aimed at reducing electricity price differential by optimizing cross-border capacity allocation is the main mechanism of the EU electricity market integration. The paper considers the problem of the abuse of dominance in intraday coupled electricity markets and the consequences of this abuse for the market integration of renewables. The paper found that the abuse of dominance in coupled markets could occur when the owner of essential facilities (i.e. power exchange) prohibits his competitors access to the infrastructure necessary for the intraday coupled auctions (i.e. shared order book). Since intraday coupled auctions combine two main instruments of market integration of renewables, i.e. close to real time trading and optimization of cross-border capacity allocation, distortion of competition in intraday coupled electricity markets can prevent efficient market integration of renewables and the greening of the power industry.
