Abstract [en]

The deregulation of the electricity market in England and Wales began in 1989. One of the main objectives of the privatisation was to create a competitive electricity market. The purpose of this study was to compare the price observed in the electricity industry in England and Wales, to what can qualitatively be expected. The prices that are observed can be related to market power, that effect is to be isolated. The scope is England and Wales. Only private customers are included in the study. A qualitative analysis of price data has been made and a regression analysis. General conclusions of this paper are that the price increase that occurred after the privatisation can partly be referred to market power.
