Energy is considered an essential commodity for the modern society. In my dissertation thesis I focused on the electricity sector and to the steps that should be taken in order to achieve the liberalization target. The European Union had set through legislation the framework for a well‐ functioning electricity market. Greece as member state of the Union is obliged to implement the EU Regulation in the national legislation. However, the current situation of the Greek electricity market is not in compliance with EU Regulation for competition in the energy sector. The liberalization process is moving slow and new entries in the market posses a very small share compared to the share of the state owned PPC that holds a dominant position in the market. Therefore, the existing problems in the market, such as low margin profits of new entries and high costs, lack of political will and reluctance of consumers to change supplier should be resolved as early as possible. The liberalized market of United Kingdom should become an example to follow the Greek electricity market. The harmonization and liberalization of the electricity market will promote national economy’s’ competitiveness since energy sector constitutes a significant magnet of investments. (EN)
