Example text

Without any ex ante regulation A can charge a sufficient high access price in order to prevent the more efficient 5's access and to defend its monopoly position. Nevertheless, in chapter 2 we show that under certain circumstances, voluntary access can occur even in an unregulated regime. Such voluntary access requires differentials in marginal treatment costs. A less efficient utility A with higher marginal treatment costs than its competitor B has incentives to allow third party access and therefore to admit competition.

Using a game theoretic model of mixed oligopolies that contains water markets specificities, this chapter reveals the surprising result that welfare tends to be higher in a regime, where the utilities are instructed to maximise profits rather than welfare. There is a broad literature about mixed oligopolies, which describes the effects of different governance structures in oligopoly competition. Early literature assumes competition between a public welfare maximising company and private profit maximising companies, where the public company acts as a Stackelberg leader - see Bos (1986), Rees (1984) or Hagen (1979).

Thirdly, the geographical extension of water networks is expected to be regional or even local due to transport costs arising from pumping requirements and water quality losses that increase with the transport distance (see BMWi 2001, p.
