Energy Market Landscape: Finland

Evolving competitive dynamics are rapidly and significantly changing the face of the gas and power markets in and around Europe. As such, a timely and broadly based understanding of the market landscape is vital for players throughout the energy value chain. Central to this is an understanding of the exact stage of competitive development reached in each market, and how it is likely to change.

Scope

  • Up-to-date insight on market structures, regulatory developments, supply and demand balances, asset developments and player strategies.
  • Insight into current levels of gas and power competitive intensity benchmarked against 33 relevant markets (EU 27 and 6 related countries).
  • Forecasts of how the nine metrics making up the competitive intensity scores will change by 2012.

Highlights

  • The MCI scores draw on nine underlying metrics grouped into three categories: Market Framework (Regulatory Effectiveness; Pricing Regime; Ease of Third Party Access), Supplier Push (Wholesale Fragmentation, Retail Fragmentation, Traded Market Maturity), and Customer Pull (Access to Market Information, Consumer Representation, Propensity to Switch)
  • Each of the Energy Market Landscape series provides a profile of both the relevant gas and power market. Issues examined include regulatory structures, player strategies and supply/demand dynamics. There is also a list of operational, planned and under construction infrastructure including power stations, pipelines, LNG terminals and storage sites

Reasons to Purchase

  • Obtain up-to-date, relevant and standardized information on European and related energy markets from a single source.
  • Have a logical framework to monitor market developments and emerging trends, identify opportunities and plan strategies accordingly.
  • Assess current and future gas and power market competitive environments by gaining insight into factors driving market competitiveness.

    • Competitive Intensity Analysis Overview
    • Datamonitor's MCI Index offers a robust framework for measuring the development of energy Market Competitive Intensity
    • The MCI Index shows how competitive a particular market is. This has applications for both new entrant seeking to enter the market, and established players and former monopoly incumbents seeking to dEFIned their market share from new entrants
    • The MCI Index assesses markets as they stood in early 2010 and forecasts conditions likely to be prevailing in July 2013, five years after full market opening
    • The MCI assessment draws on nine underlying metrics grouped into three broad clusters: Market framework; Supplier Push; Customer Pull
    • Each of the nine pillars has an assessment scale to allow for the comparison of diverse markets (see appendix for more details)
    • Gas Market Competitive Intensity
    • Finland's weak gas metrics create an MCI score very much at the lower end of the European scale
    • All of Finland's gas metrics score at the lower end of the scale
    • Finland's gas market framework scores are in stark contrast to those seen in the power sector
    • Effectiveness of Regulator [2010: 2.5/10 2013: 3/10]
