EU legislation on the internal electricity market has been comprehensively reformed. cep gives the following assessment of the reform.


In cep's view, an increasingly deregulated internal electricity market increases competition among the electricity producers, reduces electricity prices and enhances security of supply. Member States should use their social policy to take account of the electricity costs in poor households rather than continuing to keep electricity prices artificially low by way of state regulation.
