Competition policy and the regulation of the electricity supply industry in Britain and Germany
Roland Sturm and Stephen Wilks
This report compares the electricity supply industry in Britain and Germany and shows that, in terms of structure, rationality of operation, and regulatory regime of this industry, the two countries are more distant than they have been for 50 years. The report comments on the pressures for convergence, especially in view of the evolving supranational European energy policy, and assesses alternative models of regulation while emphasising the reciprocal learning opportunities.
