All Things State Aid!
Do you want to find out more about EU rules surrounding State subsidies and how they play out in the energy sector?
Access our latest publication ‘State Aid and the Energy Sector’ edited by Professor Leigh Hancher, Dr Adrien de Hauteclocque, and Dr Francesco Maria Salerno published through Hart Publishing in March 2018.
State aid to the energy sector is already the second largest category of aid in Member States across the EU. At the same time, the definition of aid and the terms of its application are becoming increasingly complicated while state aid control is increasingly becoming the instrument of choice of the Commission in managing the markets and developing the energy sector in the context of the energy transition.
This seminal work, written by key experts across the field of energy law and economics, provides a comprehensive, detailed analysis of the definition and application of State aid law and policy in the energy sector. It delves into issues such as price regulation and taxation, before considering the criteria for compatibility with capacity mechanisms, RES, projects of common interest, and services of economic interest. The research then turns to procedure, examining State aid recovery, arbitration, and enforcement, before, finally, evaluating its application across key jurisdictions within the EU, the EEA, and the Energy Community.
