The first section of the book discusses new developments following the energy liberalization process and the Third Energy Package. It includes an overview of recent EU case law on competition in the energy sector. This is followed by a discussion about the cooperation of transmission system operators and, in particular, the role of the European Network of Transmission System Operators, as well as an analysis of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators and its role in enhancing the cooperation of national energy regulators. Finally, this section discusses Regulation 994/2010 as a measure to improve the EU's security of gas supply. The second section deals with the promotion of renewable energy sources in a liberalized market. It examines Directive 2009/28/EC as Europe's new tool to reach its ambitious goals of 20% renewables in 2020. Thereafter, it discusses Denmark's new law providing incentives for the promotion of onshore wind energy. The last section concentrates on investments in the energy sector and looks at climate change. It begins with an analysis of the EU rules concerning energy and investment after the Lisbon Treaty. Thereafter, the focus turns to the Yukos Oil case and international arbitration by foreign energy investors in Russia. Finally, the book examines direct foreign investment and its role for combating climate change. (Series: Energy & Law - Vol. 12)
