The article reports that interconnector trading in electricity will not help the plans of the European Commission to promote a Europe-wide energy market unless trading regulations are changed, according to the findings of two reports. Market analyst Datamonitor mentioned barriers to full market competition, including low liquidity. The commission stressed the need for a more stable and harmonized pricing system to encourage confidence in European Union (EU) cross-border power sales.
