Belgium: national energy regulator may be given additional authority in order to protect consumers

The Belgian minister of energy has tried to give the Commission de Regulation de l'Electricite et du Gaz the authority to influence price. Suppliers would have to submit an application to change tariffs, which the regulator would either approve or refuse.

CCS: technology's prospects boosted by Dutch government

The Dutch government has granted Shell and a consortium led by GDF-Suez E30m to develop proposed carbon capture and storage schemes that are expected to capture a combined two million tones of CO2 over the next 10 years.

Dutch motorway service stations: expectations behind liberalization were too high

Dutch auto group Bovag has stated that the government's goal of increasing the proportion of independent players in the motorway fuel retail sector has seen little progress. However, despite the government's liberalization of the sector, the historic dominance of the large oil firms across the entire refueling network makes a vast increase in the number of smaller players on the motorway unlikely.

European power market: absence of regulator could impede progress

France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg have signed an agreement to integrate their electricity transmission systems. This deal is being hailed by some as the first step towards a fully integrated European wholesale market. However, the lack of an independent, comprehensive regulator may slow movement towards this goal, and towards facilitating cross-border trade.
