Retail markets in the Clean Energy Package: the electricity industry and consumers debate
- Antonio Coutinho, Chair of EURELECTRIC Retail Customers Committee
- Monika De Volder, Senior Economic Officer, Team Leader on Energy at BEUC
Intervention by Eero Ailio, DG ENER, European Commission
As the work on the Clean Energy Package (CEP) advances both in the European Parliament and the Council, together with EURELECTRIC we want to debate the key provisions dealing with future retail electricity markets.
Will the CEP, as it stands, lead to a consumer-centric energy market? Will it guarantee that consumers can easily navigate and engage in the market? Will it ensure that all consumers are able to benefit from the energy transition?
In a series of focused exchanges, speakers from the European electricity industry, EURELECTRIC, and from the European Consumer Organisation, BEUC, will steer the debate on the Commission’s proposals on retail prices, energy poverty, billing, switching, demand response and self-generation.
