Now in its fifth year, the Bordeaux Energy Colloquium was originally created to bring together the voices of various industry constituents to engage in a series of dialogues regarding the creation of a competitive energy marketplace. Each year, Colloquium members consider key variables within various contexts and evaluate their effect on the global transition trend from regulation to competition in energy markets. Fall-2005 Colloquium members agreed that the fundamental imbalance between how supply and demand options are valued is a key stumbling block in the proper functioning of energy markets. Working under the auspices of the Bordeaux Energy Colloquium, 2005 members created a call for action paper that attempts to identify important points of leverage that can be used to further unleash the potential of energy systems in favour of new lines of development.
