Grenzen der Wettbewerbspolitik bei der Öffnung von Netzwerkindustrien
Over the last decade, sector-specific regulation has been used to promote competition in European network industries. Given that competition is still rudimentary in some sectors, this process is still not finished. As a result, Member States have continued to remove regulatory barriers in network industries. This paper discusses the experiences from the energy, telecommunications and transport sectors by focussing on the role of European competition policy. We review a number of important case decisions in merger control, anti-trust and state aid control and discuss their implications for market opening. We conclude that a more holistic approach is needed in order to increase the effectiveness of competition policy instruments, i.e. a closer co-ordination of competition instruments, in particular state aid and anti-trust/merger policy.
