Alleged abuse in the retail electricity market

The Italian Competition Authority (ICA) started an investigation into Enel to ascertain whether certain practices by Enel could distort the competitive dynamics resulting from the full liberalisation of the market. Enel, as the only vertically integrated operator, allegedly leveraged on its upstream operations to foreclose competitors from the downstream market. Lear developed an analysis aimed at showing that the conducts investigated by ICA did not amount to an abuse.
