The best way for ensuring security of supply and affordable energy prices is to have a competitive internal EU energy market.

I suppose that this is dogma and all at the EU Energy Commission would laugh at any requests to provide evidence. Having basic services, upon whose proper functioning life itself depends, provided through an environment maximizing competition, seems obviously to lead to a chaotic system characterized by moving failures as firms loose their competitive edge and go bankrupt. But then I am not a trained economist.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
