In this online debate, we will discuss the latest energy sector decisions from the European Courts of Justice and consider the wider repercussions of these developments. Several important issues have been raised via the Courts in recent months and several further important rulings are expected in the coming weeks, including on dispute settlement, the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant, and EU state aid rules. We will present the key aspects of these cases, weigh the reasoning of the courts, and reflect on the implications of these decisions.

The cases we will address are:

·   Case C-238/18: GRDF SA v Eni Gas and Power France SA on dispute settlement and the extent of the powers of regulatory authorities

·   Case C-594/18 P: Austria v European Commission – an update on the ECJ’s review of the Hinkley Point judgment on state aid

·   Case T-479/11 – Case T-157/12 (appeal of Case C-438/16 P Commission v France and IFP Énergies Nouvelles) on state aid

‘Ones to Watch’:

·   Case C-705/19: AXPO Trading v Gestore dei Servizi Energetici SpA – GSE

·   Case T-300/19: Achema and Lifosa v Commission

We will be taking questions throughout the live session, but we also invite you to submit your questions in advance in the registration form.
