Successful hearing on report regarding market entrance and market operations for new entrants

Monday the 17th of November the NordREG Retail Market Working Group hosted a hearing at Helsinki airport. The focus of the hearing was the report “Market Entrant Processes, Hurdles and Ideas for Change in the Nordic Energy Market – the View of the Market” made by Dr Philip Lewis, VaasaETT. The report reflects the view of new entrants on the electricity retail market and is based on both interviews and a questionnaire made during the summer and autumn 2014. The report describes a mapping of all processes, including the differences and similarities between the Nordic countries, that new entrants enter encounter.

The working group was happy to see so many participants at the event, about 25 people at the event, and quite a few participants via the web – about 10 people. Dr Philip Lewis presented the findings of the study and the responses that were given during the public consultation of the report which took place during the fall 2014. The participants discussed the contents of the reports and this resulted in interesting and fruitful discussions.

NordREG would like to thank all participants and Dr Philip Lewis for a successful hearing.
