Competition committee checks power pricing suspicions

RAE, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, has identified electricity pricing irregularities for all consumer categories that need to be inspected, the authority’s head official Athanasios Dagoumas has told a news conference.

The country’s vertically integrated energy groups are RAE’s main concern, while the authority has already forwarded related data to the competition committee, which has the authority to investigate whether dominant players are applying abusive pricing practices.

RAE is closely cooperating with the competition committee, while the two entities have formed a working group for the matter, according to Dagoumas.
