The article focuses on the announcement by the European Union (EU) to unbundle the gas and electricity networks from the distribution business. According to German economics minister Michael Glos, Germany would not rule out any option to help make the energy sector more competitive. This includes unbundling, as long as it is applied evenly across Europe, and the creation of a regulator. The EU stated in its energy policy that it will look to separate network companies that are owned by the large suppliers.
