EU Energy Law

Volume V, EU Energy Law & Policy Yearbook 2010: The Priorities of the New Commission

Edited by: Jean-Michel Glachant, Nicole Ahner, Adrien de Hauteclocque

What is the road ahead for European energy policy? The reduction of the EU's greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, while ensuring security of supply and a truly competitive single market, is far from being easy and requires immediate and substantial policy actions. Based on the contributions and debates which took place in Brussels in January 2010 at the fifth EU Energy Law & Policy Conference, which was organized by Claeys & Casteels in partnership with the European Energy Institute, this handbook provides sound knowledge of recent developments in the field of EU energy law and policy. The speakers represent a wide variety of legal and political backgrounds and approaches to EU energy policy. They were given the mandate to critically examine current EU energy policy approaches in their respective area of expertise and to explore the agenda of the new European Commission. The handbook covers the whole range of EU energy law and policy, from the 20-20-20 strategy and new initiatives for ensuring security of supply, to the application of competition rules and the organization of an efficient technology policy. EU Energy Law & Policy Handbook 2010 provides practitioners and academics with a clear and comprehensive guide in this field.
