1. Loyola de Palacio Series on European Energy Policy

    Series editor: Jean-Michel Glachant, European University Institute, Italy and Université Paris-Sud, France

    The Loyola de Palacio Series on European Energy Policy honours Loyola de Palacio (1950-2006), former Vice-President of the European Commission and EU Commissioner for Energy and Transport (1999-2004), a pioneer in the creation of an EU Energy Policy. This series aims to promote energy policy research, develop academic knowledge and nurture the 'market for ideas' in the field of energy policy making. It will offer informed and up-to-date analysis on key European energy policy issues (from market building to security of supply; from climate change to a low carbon economy and society). It will engage in a fruitful dialogue between academics (including economists, lawyers, engineers and political scientists), practitioners and decision-makers. The series will complement the large range of activities performed at the Loyola de Palacio Chair currently held by Professor Jean-Michel Glachant (Robert Schuman Center for Advanced Studies at European University institute in Florence, Italy, and University Paris-Sud 11).

  1. Electricity Network Regulation in the EU

    Electricity Network Regulation in the EU

    Edited by Leonardo Meeus, Jean-Michel Glachant
    The UK model of incentive regulation of power grids was at one time the most advanced, and elements of it were adopted throughout the EU. This model worked well, particularly in the context of limited investment and innovation, a single and strong regulatory authority, and limited coordination between foreign grid operators. This enlightening book shows that since 2010 the whole context has changed and regulation has had to catch-up and evolve. The EU is entering a wave of investment, and an era of new services and innovation which has created growing tensions between national regulatory authorities in terms of coordinating technical standards and distribution systems. This is being played out against an increasingly disruptive backdrop of digitzation, new market platforms and novel business models. Learn More

  2. Market Building through Antitrust

    Market Building through Antitrust

    Adrien de Hauteclocque
    Market Building through Antitrust investigates the role of antitrust policy in the building of competitive energy markets in Europe. By looking at the specific problem of long-term supply and access contracts in the electricity sector, the book questions the suitability of antitrust policy as a market building tool. It shows that the institutional infrastructure that pre-dated competitive reform and the politics of liberalization have largely shaped the current dynamics at work in European energy regulatory practice. In particular, antitrust law has increasingly been used as a quasi-ex ante regulatory tool, thereby raising problems in terms of economic efficiency, legal certainty and political legitimacy.

  6. Security of Energy Supply in Europe

    Security of Energy Supply in Europe

    Edited by François Lévêque, Jean-Michel Glachant, Julián Barquín, Christian von Hirschhausen, Franziska Holz, William J. Nuttall
    In economic, technical and political terms, the security of energy supply is of the utmost importance for Europe. Alongside competition and sustainability, supply security represents a cornerstone of the EU’s energy policy, and in times of rising geopolitical conflict plays an increasingly important role in its external relations. Within this context, the contributors analyse and explore the natural gas, nuclear, and hydrogen energy sectors, which will be of critical significance for the future of energy supplies in Europe.
