Initiated in 2002, Capgemini’s European Energy Markets Observatory is an annual report that tracks the progress of two subjects: the establishment of an open and competitive electricity and gas market in EU-27 (plus Norway and Switzerland) and the reaching the EU’s 3×20 climate change objectives. It looks at all segments of the value chain and analyzes leading-edge energy themes — digital revolution, customer experience, smart grids and demand response management — to identify key trends in the electricity and gas industries.
The 15th edition of the European Energy Markets Observatory covers the whole year 2012 and winter 2012/13 on the current market situation. This includes European and global energy demand, fossil fuels situation, renewable energies, smart grids, climate change, energy transition and Utilities’ situation.
