Energy law refers to all legal norms in the field of the energy industry. These include European Union legislation on the production, distribution, transport, consumption and saving of energy. The European Union has developed dynamically in these areas over the last twenty years since the liberalisation of the energy sector across Europe, creating a considerable regulatory density and complexity.
Energy System Transformation
Energy law is currently being further developed at European level with the aim of creating an “energy union” in several legislative packages. Within the framework of the energy transition, energy law has also changed and intensified considerably at federal level and is constantly subject to changes in order to legally secure the processes of change in the energy transition. Energy industry law, energy antitrust law (Act against Restraints of Competition) and energy environmental law are therefore subject to constant amendment processes.
