While the United States and European Union engaged in electricity and natural gas market liberalization in early 1990's, many governments around the world are planning or are already engaged in a somewhat similar process of market liberalization for electricity or natural gas. In Asia, countries like Japan (deregulation in 2017), China (e.g. unbundling and open access to gas infrastructure in 2019), South Korea (the possibility to import LNG and sell to utilities as from 2025), India (third-party access in 2018 and ongoing unbundling and liberalisation efforts) and Singapore (liberalised market and ambitions to become the regional trading hub for LNG) are in the process of liberalising their national gas markets and introducing competition.
In Latin America, Brazil is going through a market liberalisation. Although the energy market creation in the Eurasian Economic Union differs significantly from other international models (such as US and EU), market creation and a degree of market liberalisation in electricity and gas markets are taking place in this region.
This OGEL Special Issue seeks to provide information relating to current developments and past experiences of market transformations and liberalisations. We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. These may relate to regulatory details or larger policy level questions. They may focus on some of the ongoing transformations and liberalisations or the lessons learned from the early liberalisations in the 1990s. Even comparative law approaches to the topic are welcomed.
