The European Energy Law Report VI presents in four parts an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy law as discussed at the 2008 European Energy Law Seminar.
The first part examines recent developments in the EU energy market liberalisation process. It includes developments in competition law and selected topics from the Third Energy Package, i.e. ownership unbundling and the establishment of an Agency for Energy Regulators.
The second part focuses on the need for network investments in a liberalised energy market. It addresses the adequacy of the legal regime for investments in electricity networks and provides an analysis of the Commission’s policy on TPA exemption requests for new gas infrastructure.
How to balance energy market liberalisation and supply security? Part III first addresses the Third Energy Package internal and external aspects of supply security. This is followed by an analysis of the reciprocity clauses in the ECT, a chapter on the development and impact of the Nord Stream pipeline and an analysis of the EU’s view on supply security in the second strategic energy review.
The final part of the book examines the role of the State in energy production. It includes chapters on the re-organisation of State participation in the upstream oil and gas sector in the Netherlands and Denmark and an analysis of the impact of the 2007 EFTA Court decisions on the Norwegian hydro power sector.

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.
