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.

Electrabel: Dutch expansion is a judicious move

Electrabel's plan to build new power plants in the Netherlands is a sensible move.

Centrica and EDF strike win-win deal, but one wins more than the other

EDF and Centrica have finally struck a deal concluding the long running sale of British Energy. After months of negotiations it will come as a relief to both parties, but while EDF walks away with GBP2.3 billion and a 51% stake in SPE, the terms that Centrica secured will reap more immediate gains for the former UK incumbent.

Belpex: one small leap for European wholesale market development

Europe's largest power exporter, France, has agreed to wholesale power market coupling with its lowland neighbors, Belgium and the Netherlands. Multinational day-ahead trading is scheduled to commence at Belpex later in November.
