Statement by Antoine Colombani, Spokesperson of Joaquín Almunia, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Competition, on commitments from CEZ concerning the Czech electricity market

12 views

On 10 April 2013, Antoine Colombani, Spokesperson of Joaquín Almunia, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Competition, a set of commitments offered by CEZ, the Czech electricity incumbent, and accepted by the Commission. These commitments are now legally binding. The Commission had concerns that CEZ may have abused its dominant market position by reserving capacity in the transmission network in order to prevent competitors from entering the market. After the Commission opened an investigation under EU antitrust rules that prohibit such behaviour, CEZ offered to divest a significant generation capacity. Following a consultation of market participants, the Commission is satisfied that the final commitments offered by CEZ adequately address its concerns.
