Synthesis

Marie-Therese Richter-Kuhnert started her intervention by stressing that discussions on energy transition play a critical role in the development of climate policies, the security of supplies and the development of energy technologies. The energy transition can be defined as a significant, structural change in the energy system which is driven by political decisions and the aim to reduce carbon emissions. The question is whether the legal provisions such as competition state aid laws have to be adapted to foster that goal, and how to ensure their integrity. Is competition law fit to serve the energy transition purpose? Competition law communities might not be prepared enough to support that political aim. Ms. Richter-Kuhnert then introduced the panellists and opened the discussions.
