Dispute Resolution Mechanisms and the Role of the Industry in European Regulatory Agencies for Energy: A Comparative Perspective
10:45-11:45, T 50A

The creation of a well-functioning European internal energy market and an interconnected, sustainable and secure Energy Union requires major coordination, harmonization and standardization efforts. These efforts are by definition multifaceted in nature and involve a variety of actors: representatives from government, national regulatory agencies, the industry and stakeholder organizations from EU Member States and countries of the European Neighbourhood. 

At the center of these efforts we find a plethora of agencies and organizations relevant for energy, such as the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENSTOE), European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), the Energy Community Treaty and the Energy Charter Treaty.

The above-mentioned agencies vary in their setup, representation and objective. Considering their multi-dimensional nature, this contribution will critically assess their role in settling disputes in the energy sector. Additionally, the contribution aims to explore the influence of the energy industry on the creation of rules within the framework of these organizations and thereby its influence on designing the EU internal energy market.
