The Vienna Forum on European Energy Law | Hors Série

The Vienna Forum on European Energy Law is an annual joint initiative of the FSR Energy Union Law Area and the Energy Community Secretariat which aims to bridge the gap in energy debate between the EU and Energy Community.

Solidarity in the European Union’s energy policy – not just a political guideline but a justiciable principle of EU primary law?


This is the position of the CJEU’s Advocate General who delivered his recent Opinion in Case C-848/19 P Germany v Poland concerning the OPAL natural gas pipeline. He advises the Court of Justice to uphold the General Court’s earlier ruling in Case T-883/16 Poland v Commission that energy solidarity is a principle of EU primary law which entails rights and obligations for EU institutions and for the Member States. Although the CJEU may not necessarily follow his advice, this Opinion already raises a number of interesting opportunities for discussion.
