  • Datamonitor

Datamonitors Market Competitive Intensity Index (MCI) is a robust framework for measuring and benchmarking the development of competitiveness and market conditions in a range of gas and electricty markets. The MCI assessment draws on nine underlying metrics grouped into three broad clusters: Market framework; Supplier Push and Customer Pull.

Scope

- Insight into the current levels of competitiveness in the gas and power markets of the EU 27 and 6 related markets.

- Analysis of the commercial opportunities and threats in the selected markets both currently and in 2010.

- A benchmarking of the factors driving competition and market entry in the gas and power sectors of the selected markets.

Highlights of this title

Datamonitors MCI Index offers a robust framework for measuring the development of utility Market Competitive Intensity.

MCI scores are calculated using two different methods. The first, the simple weighted average (additive) measure shows overall competitive intensity. The second, the multipliative method, is more complex. It prevents markets with an overly wide spread of underlying raw scores from exerting undue influence over, or skewing, the final result.

Key reasons to purchase this title

- Assess the competitive environments of gas and power markets both now and in the future.

- Gain insight into value chain factors driving market competitiveness and how each individual part of the chain will evolve as competition develops.

- Screen future market entry plans against the MCI scores to highlight key areas of potential risk and opportunity.

SUMMARY 1
ANALYSIS 2
Introduction: Datamonitors MCI Index offers a robust framework for measuring the development of energy Market Competitive Intensity 2
The MCI Index shows how attractive a particular market is to new entrants in terms of the competitive environment 2
The MCI assessment draws on nine underlying metrics grouped into three broad clusters: Market framework; Supplier Push; Customer Pull. 3
The MCI Index measures competitive intensity in EU 27 and 6 related markets 4
The MCI Index assesses markets as they stood in early 2008 and forecasts conditions likely to be prevailing three years after full market opening 4
Each of the nine pillars has an assessment scale to allow for the comparison of diverse markets (see appendix for more details) 5
Two differing overall MCI scores are calculated to ensure full clarity of results 5
A simple weighted average (additive) measure shows overall competitive intensity 5
A weighted multiple (multiplicative) measure shows overall competitive intensity 5
The MCI framework has a number of applications for your organization 6
Context: Slovakias position in the power rankings remains favourable compared to gas 7
The competitive intensity ranking of Slovakias power market will deteriorate over the period 7
Slovakias gas position remains weak over the forecast period 7
Power MCI: Slovakias power position will be impacted by Customer Pull and Supplier push metrics 9
Market Framework metrics will remain higher of all the other metrics 9
Effectiveness of Regulator [2008: 3/10 2010: 4/10] 9
Ease of Third Party Access [2008: 2.5/10 2010: 3/10] 10
Effectiveness of Balancing and Data Transfer [2008: 3/10 2010: 4/10] 10
Concentration in wholesale market and undeveloped trading market pull the Supplier Push metrics down 10
Wholesale Market Fragmentation [2008: 1.5/10 2010: 2/10] 10
The wholesale market in Slovakia is still dominated by Slovenske elektrarne a. s. (SE a.s.) covering around 84% of entire electricity generation. The company has two nuclear power plants, two thermal power plants and 34 hydroelectric power plants. Italian company, Enel, has a 66% stake in SE a.s, while the state run National Property Fund holds a 34% stake. As such, the wholesale market remains highly concentration, with little prospect of meaningful fragmentation over the forecast period. 10
Retail Market Fragmentation [2008: 4/10 2010: 5/10] 10
Traded Market Maturity [2008: 1/10 2010: 2/10] 10
Customer Pull metrics will remain relatively low due to low levels of consumer awareness and switching 10
Access to Market Information and Assistance [2008: 2.5/10 2010: 3/10] 10
Consumer Representation [2008: 2/10 2010: 3/10] 10
Propensity to Switch [2008: 0/10 2010:1/10] 11
Gas MCI: The monopolistic nature of the Slovak gas market limits competition 12
Market framework metrics doesnt show any significant improvement 12
Effectiveness of Regulator [2008: 3/10 2010: 3.5/10] 12
Ease of Third Party Access [2008: 2.5/10 2010: 3/10] 12
Effectiveness of Balancing and Data Transfer [2008: 2/10 2010: 2.5/10] 13
Supplier push metrics remain low over the forecast period 13

Retail Market Fragmentation [2008: 1/10 2010: 1/10] 13
Traded Market Maturity [2008: 0/10 2010: 0/10] 13
Lack of consumer awareness prevents switching 13
Access to Market Information and Assistance [2008: 0.5/10 2010: 0.5/10] 13
Consumer Representation [2008: 0/10 2010: 1/10] 13
Propensity to Switch [2008: 0/10 2010: 2/10] 13
Outlook: Both the power and gas markets are likely to develop, though far outside of our forecast period 14
Although the gas and power markets are currently at different stages of development, their competitive intensity scores converge in 2010 14
Power scores 14
Gas scores 14
Developments in the Slovakian power market is likely to improve after full market opening, though major challenges that remain is the lack of competition in wholesale and retail market 15
New Market Entrant Opportunities, Power 15
New Market Entrant Threats, Power 15
New opportunities lie only if the SPPs monopoly in downstream is diluted 15
