Competition in Energy Markets

Law and Regulation in the European Union

Second Edition

Peter D. Cameron

  • The most comprehensive treatment of competition law and regulation issues available in relation to EU energy markets - in a single volume
  • Anti-trust, merger control and state aid issues, including the recent Sector inquiry, all examined in separate new chapters
  • The latest mergers - from Endesa/E.ON to GdF/Suez - examined in detail
  • New chapters cover nuclear energy, oil, renewable energy, coal, energy security, the EU emissions trading scheme, the role of regulatory agencies and energy taxation
  • Clear, matter-of-fact exposition and problem-solving approach which focuses on lawyers' requirements

New to this Edition:

  • Considerable expansion to the competition law section, including cases
  • New chapter dealing expressly with oil law issues, particularly in connection with the North Sea
  • New chapter on the impact of environmental regulation, including emissions trading, renewable energy and nuclear power
  • Expanded treatment of the rules made by national energy regulatory bodies
  • Extensive coverage of new Member State rules, new legislation and competition cases
