Event Description

The European Union’s State aid rules in the field of energy and environment differ significantly from State aid rules in other areas. Due to the complexity of the rules, many practitioners still find their correct implementation challenging.

  • Questions such as
  • How to apply the block exemption in practice
  • When are tax exemptions appropriate
  • How to calculate eligible costs for environmental projects
  • How to handle the communication process with the European Commission are on the agenda of every expert who has to deal with environment or energy State aid issues since improper application of State aid rules incurs the risk of State aid recovery.

In line with the current modernisation of the EU State aid rules, the regulations for State aid for energy and the environment are about to undergo a radical change as well. Attendees at this seminar will receive a profound overview of the existing rules as well as upcoming changes on State aid for Energy and the Environment.

Leading European experts in the field of State aid from key institutions like:

  • European Commission, Directorate General for Competition, State Aid Case Support Unit
  • EFTA Surveillance Authority, State Aid and Competition Directorate
  • Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications, Division for Market and Competition, Sweden
  • Ministry of Employment and the Economy, Energy Department/Renewable Energy, Finland
  • Permanent Representation of Hungary to the European Union will demonstrate how to target State aid for environmental and energy projects with focus on national and EU Funding.
