Liberalisation and Structural Development in North-European Electricity Industries

This project strongly linked variation in national electricity-industry structural development in northern Europe in the 1990s to variation in a portfolio of national energy, industry and competition policies. The project further discussed how national variation in opportunities for restructuring (e.g. national legal variation in regulation of mergers & acquisitions) would lead to distortion of the principle of free and fair competition in the larger north-European electricity market.
