Launch of the »Position Paper: Fair Competition in the energy sector«
January 5, 2021

We are pleased to announce that ESMIG has launched the »Position Paper; Fair Competition in the energy sector«.

Iskraemeco was the initiator of the Task Force on Fair Competition within ESMIG, where we undertook to write a “Position on Fair Competition in the Energy Sector” and to engage in proactive discussions and lobbying with the authorities and officials of the European Commission. Under Iskraemeco’s leadership, an agreement was reached with all member companies and the document was approved by the ESMIG Executive Board.

ESMIG members are committed to fair and transparent competition, which should take into account the specificities of strategically important infrastructures; and for that purpose, they have prepared the proposals how to achieve fairness in the Energy sector. The situation as it is now risks incurred and propositions for solutions are described in the attached document.

Mojca Markizeti, Head of Sustainability and Regulatory Affairs Iskraemeco: »No need to say that competition is a driver of technology, development and progress, but only when ensuring true international fair level playing field. This comes to even greater importance when we are talking about mission-critical infrastructures, where unfair competition can very fast lead to the risk of technology deficit, in the era of digitalization it brings the risk of data security and sovereignty, leads to increased dependence and compromises Europe’s strategic autonomy. In the context of growing protectionism in other world regions, Europe needs to review and adapt its trade policy«.
