Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- The European Commission will likely
adopt on Dec. 8 regulation to create a tailor-made energy market
transparency and integration regime, said Tadhg O'Briain, an
official at the commission's energy directorate.
"What we considered as necessary is a framework adapted to
the specifics of energy markets to deter market abuse,"
O'Briain told a panel during the EMART conference in Amsterdam.
"We're very confident this is a proposal that can be supported
internally in the commission and externally."
The regulation, drafted by the commission's energy
directorate, will then need to be approved by the European
Parliament and member states to become binding.
