EDF Energy response to Prime Minister's "competition test" for energy suppliers

EDF Energy CEO Vincent de Rivaz first called for an inquiry by the Competition Commission into gas and electricity markets two years ago.

He repeated this call in a speech at EDF Energy's Talk Power conference with major customers on October 8 - suggesting that the new Competition and Markets Authority look at the issue.

Today Vincent de Rivaz said: "I have been calling for such an inquiry into the gas and electricity markets for two years. It is clear that it is now more vital than ever. To restore public trust, we must demonstrate that we are acting fairly. To do this, transparency is vital. We have nothing to hide."
