Up to three decades ago, the electricity sector in the European Union was organized as a regulated monopoly. In each country, one or more vertically integrated companies were responsible for generation, transmission, distribution and supply of electricity. By means of three legislative packages (1996, 2003, 2009), the European Union gradually opened this sector for competition, aiming at an internal European electricity market. The European Directives are being translated by the Member States in national legislation.

In Germany and other EU-Member countries electricity from renewable sources already account for above 30%.We offer consultancy services in the below fields:
