Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At least in Sweden, it was strongly advocated by Vattenfall and was backed by Vattenfalls role as monopoly grid controller. Local utilities that followed Vattenfalls line was rewarded by lower prices on electricity sold to them and higher prices on electricity sold from them. Utilities that did not follow the line was similarly punished. This was regulated in secret treaties (that has expired and are no longer secret) during the period that nuclear power was much debated and a referendum held on abolishment of nuclear power.
