Evaluating Privatisation, Regulation and Liberalisation in the EU
Edited by Massimo Florio
Chapter 3: Market reforms, governance and performance: lessons learned from the experience in the EU energy industries
This chapter analyzes how the European energy industry has been reformed in the last decades. We describe the structure of the industry prior to and after its reform; the nature of the four businesses; the progress in creating a competitive generation and retail markets; the change in ownership and corporate governance of the incumbent companies; and how they have responded to market reforms. We finally discuss the impact of these reforms on market performance, prices and social well-being in general.
