conventional sources contests the compatibility of the Law with Community law and
seeks on that ground reimbursement of sums which it had to pay to a downstream
electricity distribution undertaking subject to the purchase obligation. The plaintiff
electricity supplier owns a majority of the shares of the defendant distributor and both
parties agree on the incompatibility of the Law in issue with Community law and national
