Presentazione del volume

This book is the result of a long, joint effort begun in 1995. It has three objectives: a) to illustrate the situation of the electricity industry in the EU member states by describing the basic data, organization and fundamental regulations; b) to analyse the mechanisms behind the complex interplay between the electricity industry and political power; c) to highlight the current relationship between the regulation, structure and ownership of the electricity supply industry and national performance.

In order to make the comparative analysis easier to understand, the chapters are divided by country and have the same format. In order to provide an in-depth analysis, it was necessary to have independent experts from each country. In the end, we managed to cover twelve out of fifteen EU members states (the missing countries are Ireland, Luxembourg and Holland). Eight of the chapters were prepared by members of research institutes belonging to the ENER network which has a long history working together. The remaining four chapters (on Finland, Greece, Spain and Sweden) were prepared by scholars or qualified experts from outside the ENER network.

While the first draft of the twelve chapters was being prepared, in December 1996 the Council and European Parliament passed the Directive 96/92/EC on the domestic electricity market. Due to the changes in the scenario, the original chapters had to be revised and completed by the end of 1999. It took two more years to complete the book for publication. In the meantime the situation in some countries changed considerably. Nevertheless, we decided not to update again the national chapters both because more changes are likely to occur in the future and because the most ambitious aim of the book is to relate performance to the regulation, structure and ownership of the electricity industry in each country. This can be achieved by presenting a historical analysis which remains valid even though not completely up to date.

Luigi De Paoli is Head of IEFE, the Institute for Economics and Policy of Energy and Environment of Bocconi University, Milan, Italy. The ENER is the European Network for Energy Economics Research, funded by the DG TREN of the Commission for the European Union, which groups together 16 European research teams.
