Key Challenges and Issues Facing the European Energy Market Concentration

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - announces that a new market research report related to the Energy industry is available in its catalogue.

Segmented European Energy Market Concentration

Datamonitor's Segmented European Energy Market Concentration Brief offers an overview of the retail market dynamics in the EU 27 energy markets. It examines the relative levels of concentration in each market and highlights the major players and their influences in both the B2C and B2B sectors. It measures market concentration using the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI).

Insight into the widely varying competitive landscape within the European Union's retail energy markets. Comprehensive information detailing national consumption volumes and market structure. A comparison of relative market concentration within energy markets and against each other.

In the B2C power sector, six countries have an HHI score of 1.0, indicating the existence of a monopoly that is not exposed to competition. The average EU27 HHI index of 0.67 in the B2C gas sector reflects the high degree of market concentration and the lack of effective retail competition in the market. The UK is the most competitive B2B gas market in terms of its HHI score of 0.10.

Benchmark the extent of market concentration in individual energy markets as well as against other EU member states. Understand how national legislation has influenced energy market competition. Save time by accessing consistently sourced national consumption data on the EU energy markets.
