Abstract

The (Danish) Competition Council has emphasized that energy taxes comprise a significant part of the overall costs of industrial firms in Denmark and that working towards the goals of Danish energy policy has a strong influence on competition between companies. Governmental control of supply and demand through the use of taxation, subsidies and planning stipulations has resulted in a weakening of the market mechanism`s steering of energy consumption towards optimal efficiency. The main aim of the statement is to describe Danish energy supply and the distortion of conditions of competition that can be found within the part of the Danish energy sector which deals with public supply of electricity and heating and individual supply of fuels for heating purposes. The Danish law on competition is elaborated. The Council suggests that the current combination of energy and environmental interests can not be realised within a system which builds totally on market premisses but that these political goals could only be achieved within a simpler, more logical system which will allow incitaments to competition and continued increase of effectivity and thus a better compatibility with market mechanisms. The conclusions of the evaluation by The Competition Council are presented in detail and concern  More>>

The conclusions of the evaluation by The Competition Council are presented in detail and concern the market structure, the powerful governmental control, market access, price setting, the element of force, EU initiatives and taxes on energy and carbon dioxide emission. Historical aspects of this subject are also described. Comments from three concerned Danish organizations on the statement are included in the publication. (AB)}
