Comment on energy auctions and competition law

Press/Media: ResearchPopular


I commented on the compatibility with competition law of certain energy auctions that involved a price floor, set partly in agreement with the entities participating in the auction. In particular in close oligopolistic markets and auctions where there is a very limited number of participants, this may facilitate collusion contrary to the competition rules. The interview was broadcast in the RTL Journaal of 19:30 on 31 July 2014.
