Abstract

Asistimos en la actualidad a la finalización del proceso de liberalización del sector eléctrico que se inició a finales del siglo XX. Durante más de cincuenta años esta actividad estuvo fuertemente regulada, pero no siempre fue así. El retorno a un mercado de libre competencia y escasamente supervisado nos sitúa en un escenario de alguna manera comparable con el existente en los primeros setenta años de desarrollo de la electricidad. Los avances han sido evidentes y la estructura de los mercados ha cambiado radicalmente, pero en ambos periodos encontramos unas normativas técnicas y de seguridad muy definidas; un sistema tarifario meramente supervisado; y una oferta que mantiene sus tendencias a la colusión. El artículo sistematiza el proceso legislativo desarrollado a partir de la aparición del fenómeno eléctrico, cuáles fueron sus resultados y realiza un estudio de caso para observar como se materializó todo ello en un mercado concreto.
