Network Industries Quarterly

6000 Persons

We currently distribute to over 6000 persons, most of whom we have come to know personally at some point over the past years.

Since 2008

Network Industries Quarterly has been published four times a year since 2008

In 1999

It has started as a paper version in 1999 in French and switched to an English online version as the audience had become increasingly more international. Over the years new partnerships with TU Delft and the Florence School of Regulation at the European University Institute were established.

Since 2014

As of 2014, Network Industries Quarterly appears under a new layout, it is included in the EUI research repository Cadmus

Sector coupling: How to regulate convergence?

In this special issue we explore the links between infrastructure sectors, especially in terms of regulating interfaces between the different sectors and regulating more integrated and converging sectors.

Transport in the European Green Deal

This special issue of Network Industries Quarterly is dedicated to the European Green Deal and its implications for the transport sector. In its long-term decarbonisation strategy ‘A Clean Planet for All,’ the European Commission paints a clear picture of the vast transformations that will have to take place across all sectors of the economy for Europe to become climate neutral by 2050. In its subsequent European Green Deal, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen reinforces this ambition and pledges to enshrine the climate neutrality objective into legislation.

Water Utilities – governance and performance

This issue of Network Industries Quarterly is devoted to water utilities, their governance and their performance. With growing urbanization, pollution and water stress, utilities are ever more challenged to provide safe and affordable drinking water in an ecologically sustainable manner. Are they and will they in the future be up to the task? What is and should be the right size to do this? What is and should be the best governance of them (ownership, legal structure, regulation) to make sure that they can deliver? What is and should be the most appropriate articulation between governance of the water resource and governance of the utility? These are some of the questions that the four papers seek to address. The examples the authors refer to pertain mainly to Latin America, namely Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina.

Regulating Digital Platforms

Regulating Digital Platforms

In this issue we pursue our exploration of whether and how digital platforms, especially digital platforms as applied to the network industries, should and could be regulated. Indeed, as of recently, attention paid to these emerging digital platforms is exploding. Most of the related publications aim at making recommendations as to whether, and if yes, how to regulate these digital platforms in the interest of the consumer, the citizen, the public economy and even public values. Some of these recommendations may be drawn quite hastily, triggered by scandals and other (geo-)political considerations.
