Fuel mix data "must be simple" says industry

Forthcoming EU rules requiring electricity suppliers from next July to inform customers of the fuel mix in their portfolio should be "simple, feasible and cost-efficient", says European electricity industry association Eurelectric. Unless suppliers are allowed to adopt "a flexible system based on best available information", it warns in a report, implementation of the rules may be delayed. Eurelectric also says that suppliers should decide individually how to present information. A European Commission-sponsored report recently recommended instead a harmonised system across the EU (EED 21/10/03). See press release and report.
