A Europe-wide research project that focuses on the challenges that competitors face in entering and competing in and across retail energy markets in Europe.
VaasaETT, REKK, MRC and The Advisory House are carrying out a Europe-wide research project to analyse barriers to entry in retail energy markets in the EU. The ground-breaking project, the most extensive of its kind to-date, will research the challenges facing suppliers and other retail market competitors such as aggregators and ESCOs in 30 European electricity and gas markets. All 28 EU Member States plus Switzerland and Norway, will be researched.
An initiative of the European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy
The project will draw on carefully crafted and extensive interviews and questionnaires with an extensive array of stakeholders in every market to get to the routes of 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.
