EnergyXS: red light for the green supplier

EnergyXS, the Netherlands' leading supplier of "green" power, has been reported to have asked for bankruptcy protection. The failure of EnergyXS is a major blow to the hopes of Europe's "renewable power" lobby to carve out a respectable niche for green electricity within the region's energy sector.

Electrabel: triple Dutch

Recent indications from Electrabel that it is actively seeking to further expand its presence in the Dutch market serve as a sign that European utilities are increasingly taking on board the concept of internationalization. If the company does build the 1,550MW of capacity it is understood to be evaluating, such a move will greatly advance its already strong position in the Dutch market.

Electrabel: Dutch expansion is a judicious move

Electrabel's plan to build new power plants in the Netherlands is a sensible move. Datamonitor analysis finds that the country is the third most attractive European market for new power entrants, with a committed regulator, good third party access and a mature power exchange. Interestingly, it has also enjoyed a sizeable rate of growth in total power demand during the last ten years.

Dutch utilities: should the consumer be worried by market domination?

As the Dutch energy market moves through the early stages of competition, suppliers have used M&A activity and cost cutting to improve their respective positions. With just 7 million residential customers, there is not much room for competition in this market. Reduced competition will partly be a result of end-user apathy and cannot just be blamed on M&A activity.

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.

Dutch gas: liberalization comes a step closer

The recent decision by the Dutch government to acquire full ownership of the Dutch gas grid has been welcomed as a catalyst towards a liberalized Dutch market. However, despite the advances in market opening the proposed deal will bring, considerable progress still needs to be made in bringing about a meaningfully competitive market in the Netherlands.

Dutch energy: government protects its own

The new Dutch government wants to liberalize the energy sector before allowing its infrastructure to be privatized, which removes the main target for foreign competitors. Meanwhile, utility consolidation continues as Nuon and Eneco emerge as leading contenders to takeover Remu. But government's moves will only delay, not prevent, the Dutch market's fall into foreign hands.

Dutch energy: competition delayed again

Dutch electricity and gas companies have been given a further six months to prepare for full competition, allowing them time to improve the switching process. Switching is expected to be high when the market finally does open, with 9% of residential customers forecast to choose a new supplier in the first year of full competition.<BR />
