The zero-carbon energy transition is the solution to the 2022 energy crisis and a fundamental part of the solution to the global climate crisis. But there are relatively low levels of investment in renewable energy in developing countries, hindering their achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and contribution to the Paris Agreemen...
Chapter
This contribution focuses on the concept of the “zero-carbon” energy transition in the EU. It is seen as linked with the broader net zero-carbon policy that combines a reduction in carbon emissions and carbon offsets. The promotion of zero-carbon energy systems advances and sets down targets for an increased use of clean energy technologies that wi...

INTRODUCTION In ancient Greek mythology, the goddess Harmonia (Ἁρμονί α), who personifies harmony, was the daughter of Ares, god of war, and Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and love. Extending the interpretation and the symbolism of the myth to the field of law, one could see harmonisation, that is, the action of bringing harmony between different leg...

INTRODUCTION Since the mid-2000s, and especially since the early 2010s, the terms ‘low-carbon economy’ , ‘low-carbon energy transition’ and ‘decarbonisation’ have appeared in quite a few Commission policy documents and have encapsulated the direction of EU energy and climate change policy. Most recently, the new supranational strategy that was pres...

In ENEA, not only did the CJEU confirm the PreussenElektra dogma, but it also expanded on its previous case law. Thus, a narrow interpretation of the notion of aid ‘granted by State or through State resources’ seems to be re-establ...

Η θέσπιση κανόνων για τον ανταγωνισμό δεν αρκεί για την επίτευξη των στόχων της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης. Απαιτείται και η διαμόρφωση ενός αποτελεσματικού συστήματος επιβολής του δικαίου του ανταγωνισμού. Στο σύστημα αυτό, πρωταρχικό ρόλο έχει η δημόσια επιβολή. Ωστόσο, η δημόσια επιβολή πρέπει να συμπληρώνεται από ένα σύστημα ιδιωτικής επιβολής. Το 2014...
