Abstract:
Following the example of most western countries Russia has stepped on the path of reforming the electricity sector. However, instead of the expected benefits of liberalization, Russian entrepreneurs faced the significant increase in retail electricity prices. This leaves the authorities no actual regulatory leverage on the situation. What is a competitive market in the theory and the competitive electricity market in Russia - these are the main issues in this article.

Keywords:

competition, electricity, oligopoly, quasi-competiveness, reform
