Απελευθέρωση της αγοράς ηλεκτρικής ενέργειας και προστασία των καταναλωτών στην Ευρωπαϊκή και Ελληνική έννομη τάξη (Doctoral thesis)

Ζησιού, Αγγελική Κ.

Nowadays, with the adoption of the Winter Package, aiming at transforming the electricity markets, the Energy Union and EU are well on their way to becoming a prosperous, modern, competitive, and climate-neutral economy.The present study consists of two sections. The first section examines the liberalization process of the electricity sector while the latter focuses on the energy consumer protection legislative toolbox, under the E.U. and Greek regulatory regime.More specifically, the first section aims to investigate and elucidate the legislative framework that accompanied the liberalization process of the electricity sector. All the parameters that contributed to the liberalization process of the electricity sector are studied via a thorough review of the complex underlying legislative system. The pathway from liberalization to market coupling is outlined while the common vision of creating a single electricity market drives the liberalization process.The second section focuses on the Winter Package regulatory recast, featuring a wide range of different measures empowering consumers to act. The significant effect of the energy consumers on the market regulation is investigated alongside with the evolution of their role. The new Electricity Directive measures strengthen the existing consumer rights and extend them, introducing a series of new rights, targeting to the transformation of the role of the energy consumer to the concept of "active customer". In addition, the Greek regime’s energy consumer protection framework is presented, together with a review of the reported energy consumers’ claims.The EU vision and the reflected Winter Package policies, transforming energy consumers into actors of the economic transition, coincides perfectly with the technological revolution and the digitization of energy (digitalization and digital energy) equipping them not only with legislative tools but also with tangible solutions. Nevertheless, the ever-increasing digitization of the energy sector also raises regulatory concerns. The emerging Blockchain technology, attempting to resolve these issues, is being further investigated in the context of this study as a potentially supportive technology for the digital transformation and the associated active role of the customer.
