EU Energy Studies Volume XII: EU Energy Law and Policy, a South European Perspective – Meeting the Challenges of a Low Carbon Economy
This book provides an insight into some of the most significant issues presented at the Florence School of Regulation and Hellenic Energy Regulation Institute’s joint conference
on European energy law and policy, which took place on 30 September 2016 in Athens, Greece.
The conference brought together over 200 experts, including scholars, leading academics in EU law, and key representatives from industry and energy institutions, alongside over 13,000 online viewers. The purpose of the conference was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the current status of the European and Greek energy sector, and the issues it faces, from both a legal and economic perspective. The discussions included an assessment of the low carbon challenges for Europe, examining the future of renewable energy systems and support mechanisms, electricity market design, and the current regulatory framework of the gas and electricity markets in Greece. Alongside these topics were in-depth analyses of the various complex issues surrounding cross-border gas construction projects, exploring inter-governmental agreements and whether EU law can be applied to third countries. Finally, the discussions turned to the future role of Distribution System Operators, both in their function as independent supervisors of the electricity market and their evolving relationship with the Transmission System Operators.
