In this paper, Professor Leigh Hancher and Marinus Winters examine the Commission’s proposals to facilitate the transition to a “clean energy economy” and to reform the design and operation of the European Union’s electricity market, as outlined in the ‘Winter Package’, which was published on 30 November.
