Energy Union Law
As the EU plays an increasingly important role in energy regulation, the fast-paced development of European policy and law poses complex and challenging issues for legal specialists in the sector. We provide a forum for critical discussion and independent analysis of the developments in EU energy law and policy.
Among our activities, each year we organise an extensive series of policy events throughout Europe focusing on the current topics facing energy market players from both a legal and economic perspective, and promote European and international networking through knowledge and practice sharing. We carry out applied research including, at present, a significant multi-authored project on State aid in the energy sector, and provide trainings, at both fundamental and specialised levels, which bring together leading experts in the field to provide participants with critical insight and a comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge of the key issues in energy law and policy.
Our activities are aimed at professionals from national energy regulatory authorities, European and international institutions, energy-focused law firms, consultancies and energy utility companies.
