The article reports on the opposition of European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) to the revised transmission charges set by Hungarian transmission system operator Mavir. The company would levy a charge of £1/MWh for transporting electricity from Slovakia. EFET accuses Mavir of taking the action in retaliation for the Slovak operators' refusal to sign up to a cross-border payment accord signed by most other European transmission companies.
