Energy market to take first step to liberalisation

Slovakia's power market will take the first step towards liberalisation January 1, 2002 as users with power demands of over 100 GWh a year will be allowed to choose between energy suppliers.

The Mikuláš Dzurinda government has recently pushed ahead with plans to liberalise Slovakia's energy market and has pledged to sell off gas giant Slovenský plynárenský priemysel (SPP) and crude oil pipeline operator Transpetrol by the end of this year.

However, the sale of electricity utility Slovenské elektrárne, slated for next year, is unlikely to be carried through on time, sector experts have said.
