This conference seeks to present an update on the European legislative and regulatory initiatives in the liberalisation of electricity markets and security of supply. It will provide an opportunity to consider how these revolutionary changes are likely to influence the GB market and its relationship with continental markets.

July 2004 saw the deadline for the implementation of a revised European Directive concerning the liberalisation of the electricity (and gas) market(s), and the associated Regulation covering cross border trading, the harmonisation of transmission charging, and congestion management. The draft directive on Security of Electricity Supply and Infrastructure Investment, now at an advanced stage in the legislative process, proposes provisions for greater regulatory involvement in the markets to safeguard against interruptions to supply.

The implementation of these legislative initiatives will create a new set of challenges for the governance of electricity markets at a European and national level, and will create a new landscape for market participants in the power sector across Europe.
