Workshop – EU Energy Law in Transition: The New Challenges 

As changes in the energy sector have recently gathered pace, this workshop is designed to bring together legal practitioners, regulators, policy makers, and academics, to take stock of the developments and emerging challenges, and to provide a forum for debate on these issues.  

The workshop will be divided into four sessions. 

In the opening session, we will consider the emergence of a new type of energy company and the demise of the vertically integrated utility company, alongside an examination of merger control and innovation. This will be followed by a session on State aid in the energy sector, in which we will review the Andersen ruling and it’s possible impact on ongoing operating aid, and the support of state aid to renewable energy systems. The third session will focus on the new approaches to retail market regulation in relation to the Ofgem consultation on the future of retail market regulation, and will include discussion on the issue from both a national and economic perspective. In the closing session, we will analyse international energy trading, to include discussion of China’s market economy status, the EU-Russia trading dispute before the WTO, and the outcome of the IGA consultation. We expect it to be a very informative and productive workshop.  

This workshop will be hosted by our donor Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP at their Brussels office. 

Deadline for Registration: 18 April 2016
