Alternative fuels: CNG is emerging as a serious contender

Sales of compressed natural gas (CNG) cars have increased significantly over the last two years in Germany, and indeed in Europe as a whole. As CNG vehicles can be refueled at home, they offer added practicality, and this, added to the growing backlash against biofuels, gives CNG the potential to become a significant player in the alternative fuels market over the next few years.

Asset unbundling: utilities seek to prolong the status quo

Several German utilities have reportedly put forward proposals to merge their networks with those of foreign competitors as an alternative to divesting these operations.

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. Yet with comparable levels of GDP and energy tariffs to its European neighbors does Belgium's energy market really need such radical measures?
