Antitrust/Competition / Energy Antitrust and Regulation
Competition in Energy Markets

The Brattle Group frequently assists companies and organizations in examining competitive conditions in electricity, natural gas, pipeline, and oil markets. We advise companies and regulators on electricity and natural gas market design, on the potential for energy market manipulation, and on whether regulated firms may qualify for market-based rates. Our deep institutional knowledge and antitrust experience enables us to address competitive issues that frequently arise in energy markets.

We provide consulting and expert testimony, including economic analysis of market competitiveness, market manipulation, and monopolization in the U.S., Canada, the European Union, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, and New Zealand. Our testimony and expert reports have been presented before the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, the Australian Competition Tribunal, the Directorates General for Energy and Transport and Competition of the European Community, the Competition Bureau of the Government of Canada, and the U.S. Department of Justice.
