The French Competition Authority imposes several interim measures on an energy provider suspected of abuse of dominance (Engie)

The Autorité de la concurrence issues several urgent interim measures on Engie so that the price of some of its market offers to business customers reflects its costs.* In brief Last October, Direct Enrgie made a referral to the Autorité de la concurrence. In particular it reported that Engie's pricing practices on its market offers were liable, in its opinion, to be anticompetitive. It also requested the order of interim measures. In a decision issued today, the Autorité de la concurrence found that, given the information in the file known to date, Engie had fixed the prices of its individual market offers, namely those that are non-catalogued and reserved for business customers, without taking the real costs into account, at the risk of establishing predatory or exclusionary pricing.
