A project commissioned by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy.
MRC, VaasaETT, REKK, and The Advisory House are delighted to announce the commencement of 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 maket competitors such as aggregators and ESCOs in 30 European electricity and gas markets. All 28 member states plus Switzerland and Norway, will be researched.
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 assit entrants and policy makers alike (more infrmation to be released in due course).
We look forward to contacting stakeholders in the market over the coming months to learn more about their challenges and possible solutions and the context and processes within which they operate. If you represent a new entrant in the market, a regulator, or another key key stakeholder within the retail process, we want to hear from you.
