The European Energy Law Report V presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy law as discussed at the 2007 European Energy Law Seminar. The book consists of four parts.
The first part examines recent developments in EU competition law and how it affects the energy sector. In addition to the Energy Sector Inquiry, the profit sharing mechanisms in gas contracts are analysed by competition law experts.
The second part focuses on cross-border trade and its relevance for the establishment of an internal energy market. Two chapters deal with the re-emerging role of energy transit in the EU. This is followed by an analysis of the establishment of regional electricity markets and how to increase transparency in European electricity markets.
Liberalising the energy sector and creating a secure and sustainable energy supply is a difficult balancing act, which is discussed in part three. This is illustrated by an overview of how the EU energy policy has developed since the 1960s and the complexity of the policy goals in the Third Energy Package of 2007. Several legal instruments are being developed to guarantee security of supply and the protection of energy systems necessary to guarantee a regular supply of energy.
The final part of the book introduces a complete new development, i.e. the issue of Carbon Capture and Storage. In addition to developments on EU level, the authors discuss the national approaches in the UK, Norway and the Netherlands.
With contributions of M.M. Slotboom, L. Hancher, W. Boltz, T. Vermeir, C. Vandenborre, O.-H. Wasenden, J. de Jong, S. Muter Goldberg, J. A. Hoyos Pérez, J. Henningsen, M. Newbery, D.E. Henriksen and M. M. Roggenkamp.
Energy & Law is a series which closely monitors the developments in energy law. Since the liberalisation of the gas and electricity markets and the development of sustainable energy sources, the European energy markets have been in constant development.
Market players have adapted themselves to these new market circumstances and the market structure of the energy sector has change thoroughly under the influence of free competition. The implementation of the EU liberalisation directives will change the organisation and working methods of the energy markets.
Energy & Law is published in parallel with the Dutch series Energie & Recht.
