The article critically analyzes the evolution of competition law in the energy sector of the European Union. It highlights the efforts that are taken up by the European Commission to ensure that there is a single market for the energy sector. The article's scope spans from the natural monopoly days where the energy sector was controlled by the State to days of State-aid control. Inter alia, the paper mainly deals with the anti-competitive practices that the EU had to face in the energy sector and the measures that were adopted by the EC to see that there is free and fair competition in the energy sector, leading to the beneficial development of the ultimate consumer.
