Electricity is an essential good in our society. Besides the generation of light and heat, it is the basis of our industrial activity. In the course of time and with progressive liberalisation, the electricity market has undergone a fundamental transformation with the aim of creating a single European market, increasing security of supply, implementing competitive prices and customer-oriented services and ensuring environmental compatibility. This market is organised and shaped by a steadily increasing number of companies and individuals who produce, trade, distribute and supply electricity to end customers under the given political framework.
