Emissionshandel und EG-Beihilfenrecht

01 July 2004

Recht der Energiewirtschaft
The article by Carl-Stephan Schweer and Bernhard Ludwig "Emissionshandel und EG-Beihilfenrecht," published in the July issue of "Recht der Energiewirtschaft" discusses whether State aid is involved in the upcoming scheme for greenhouse gas emissions allowance trading within the European Community, which is designed to combat climate change in a cost-effective way. Since most part of the emission allowances have to be initially allocated free of charge - in Germany all of them -, rules on allocation favoring certain undertakings ore sectors could distort competition in the common market. Effective protection from such distortions of competition depends on whether state aid rules apply.   For copies of the articles in English, please contact the author.
