Further Ofgem call for more EU regulation

Ofgem press notice (1 page, PDF) calling for new EU legislation as suggested in the final report of the European Commission inquiries into competition issues in electricity and gas markets.

The notice also states that:

Ofgem supports the Commission's proposals to build up and strengthen the powers of the European Regulators Group, ERGEG, in which Ofgem will continue to play a leading role.

Ofgem's chairman Sir John Mogg is the chairman of ERGEG. He is quoted giving a similar response to the Commission's report in a CEER/ERGEG press notice (2 pages, Microsoft Word). He had previously called for more EU legislation to regulate the electricity and gas sectors.

For further information or advice please contact Franck Latrémolière.
