Analysis
Barriers to entry in EU Retail energy marketsUploaded: 1 of March, 2019

The consortium of REKK, VaasaETT, MRC and The Advisory House contracted by the European Commission conducts a Europe-wide research project to analyse barriers to entry in retail energy markets. The project assesses the challenges facing suppliers and other retail market competitors in 30 European electricity and gas markets. All 28 Member States plus Switzerland and Norway, will be covered.
The project will draw on carefully crafted and extensive interviews and questionnaries with an extensive array of stakeholders in every market to get to the routes of the the most significant hurdles. A comprehensive literature review, workshops and webinars will also be conducted.
The project will enable a comparative view of how easy it is to enter and compete in and across retail energy markets in Europe. Specifically, it will result in tools to assist entrants and policy makers alike.
