Wind energy sector criticises lack of competition in European power markets
"Real competition in European power markets is a myth. It is impossible to create effective competition in the European market for renewable electricity unless effective competition is first introduced in the conventional power market. Unless the current distortions in the emerging Internal Electricity Market are overcome, there will be no effective market for renewables to compete in", said Corin Millais, CEO of EWEA.
EWEA is the voice of the wind industry, actively promoting wind power in Europe and worldwide. It has over 600 members, which are active in over 50 countries, making EWEA the world's largest and most powerful wind energy network.
