The Vienna Forum on European Energy Law is a long-standing collaboration between the FSR Energy Union Law Area and the Energy Community Secretariat with the mission to bridge the gap in energy debate between the EU and Energy Community.
Each year, the initiative has continued to grow and build upon the successes of previous editions. This year will mark the 7th year of the project. Over the course of two days, we will bring together representatives from EU institutions, academics, and representatives from regulatory authorities alongside members of industry, energy-focused law firms and consultancies to exchange knowledge and share practices on how to tackle the latest EU energy issues and explore the opportunities for integrated energy policies from both a legal and economic perspective.
Among the topics we will explore this year:
- The global energy transition
- The current state of the Energy Union and the legacy of the Juncker Commission
- The Legal Issues of Renewable Energy:
- Auctioning systems
- Contractual frameworks
- Potential business models
- The private enforcement of environmental and climate law
- The legal aspects of the new energy world:
- Citizen energy communities
- Decarbonisation and energy security
- Security of Supply
- Nord Stream and South Stream after the amendments to the Gas Directive
- Ukraine’s future in the gas route
- Cyber security
- Critical infrastructure and foreign investors
Further details coming soon, including the full programme and registration details.
