This third edition incorporates the conclusions and consequences of the Sectoral Energy Competition Enquiry. The new edition contains an entirely reworked section on anti-competitive agreements and practices by Lars Kjolbye, at the time of writing the Head of Unit in charge of anti-trust in the energy sector in the European Commission. It further examines in detail the developments in individual case concerning long-term capacity reservation and sales/purchase agreements.

It also considers recent developments on cases concerning collusion on price and quantity restrictions. This second edition looks thoroughly into detail at the consequences of the sectoral enquiry on abuse of a dominant position, particularly regarding discrimination in network access. Revises the section on merger control to take account of developments in the methodology in defining markets and defining dominance/significant impediment of competition from the sectoral enquiry. The book furthermore updates the State Aid section to take accounts of new decisions on renewable support schemes and security of supply.
