London Economics was commissioned by the General Council of the “Commission fédérale de Régulation de l’Electricité et du Gaz” (CREG) to analyse whether, and to what extent, the current federal regulation makes the markets for production, trading and supply of electricity competitive or potentially competitive and, if not, what remedies could be implemented.

The report takes into account electricity market developments in major European countries, especially neighbouring countries, presents detailed findings regarding the structure and functioning of the three Belgian electricity markets of interest (generation, trading, and supply), analyses structural and regulatory impediments to competition in these markets, and proposes a range of remedies to address these impediments.
