The article reports on the decision of Germany's energy regulator to increase the allowed rate of return for power network operators from 2009. Under initial proposals, the Federal Network Agency (FNA) had threatened to trim next year's allowable return for electricity grid firms from 7.92 per cent to 7.82 per cent. In a further surprise concession, the FNA will require operators to improve efficiency by less that 1 per cent a year over the next decade.
