The impact of regulation, privatization and competition on gas infrastructure investments

Energy, 2014, vol. 69, issue C, 82-85

Abstract: In recent years we have witnessed several reforms in network industries, as privatization, regulatory changes and opening to competition in certain segments of the value chain. In sectors such as electricity and gas, this opening to competition is possible only in certain activities (i.e. generation, storage of natural gas and supply), maintaining as a natural monopoly the activities of distribution and transmission, and therefore still subject to regulation.
