"The roles of the State and the markets in EU energy law: A focus on security of supply"

This lecture will explore how EU energy law allocates power and responsibility between the State and the markets in the energy sector through the lens of security of electricity supply. The lecture will discuss the contemporary security concerns that arise in the context of the clean energy transition and the legal approaches with which EU policy and law address these issues. It will focus on the most recent legislative instruments adopted in the Clean Energy Package (CEP) in an effort to explain how these rules govern the energy sector and divide roles and responsibilities between the States and the markets.

The lecture is based on research to be published in the 2/2020 issues of the Journal of World Energy Law & Business.
