Germany Sees Red: Eon Becoming a New Energy Monopoly


Analysis shows: After the planned takeover of customers and networks of RWE-subsidiary Innogy, Eon would dominate two thirds of the market / LichtBlick calls on antitrust authorities to stop the deal

Hamburg, February 2nd, 2019. In a statement, green energy provider LichtBlick has called for the EU Commission to block the mega-deal between RWE and Eon which would restructure the energy market. The statement was composed by the law firm Raue LLP, which specializes in competition law.

“The plans of these two energy giants aim to put an end to the competitive electricity market in Germany. The victims of this are electricity customers who must take higher energy prices into account. The antitrust authorities must halt this plan,” says Gero Lücking, Managing Director of Energy Management at LichtBlick.
