French Court to Decide on Removal of Regulated Gas Tariffs

Posted by June 19, 2017

France's highest administrative court should decide by the end of July on the potential removal of regulated gas tariffs for consumers, sources close to the matter told Reuters on Monday.

The ANODE association of alternative power and gas vendors filed a legal challenge against regulated gas tariffs with France's Conseil d'Etat in 2013.

The council then sought the advice of the European Court of Justice, which in September 2016 ruled that regulated tariffs were an obstacle to a competitive market in natural gas.
