The Creation of Regional Electricity Markets – An ERGEG Conclusions Paper

The ERGEG Conclusions Paper on the Creation of the Regional Electricity Markets (Electricity Road Map) forms the basis of the launch (on 27 February 2006) of a major EU-wide Electricity Regional Initiative (ERI) designed to identify and remove barriers to competition in 7 EU regions. This regulator-led initiative, which aims to involve all stakeholders including Member States, TSOs and industry, is a practical and achievable way of delivering step-wise progress towards a competitive single European market for electricity.
