How Green is State Aid Control?

Online Webinar

The Florence School of Regulation in partnership with the Centre of European Law at King's College London are co-hosting a webinar titled 'How Green is State Aid Control?' on Thursday 1 July 2021 at 12:00 - 13:30 (BST).

The session will discuss State Aid Control and Environmental Protection and Dr. Leigh Hancher, Senior Advisor at Baker Botts, will act as co-commentator throughout the discussion.

In its 2019 Communication on The European Green Deal, the Commission identified the revision of State aid guidelines as a key factor in “supporting a cost-effective transition to climate neutrality by 2050”. The Energy and Environmental State aid guidelines (EEAG) were considered particularly important in this regard. After a comprehensive evaluation of all State aid rules was published in October 2020, the Commission has recently launched a public consultation on the proposed revision of the EEAG, which will now be known as Climate, Energy and Environmental State aid guidelines (CEEAG).

This timely event will convene a high-level line-up of scholars and practitioners to discuss these draft revisions and their implications.

Presentations and commentary will be followed by an audience Q&A.

This event will be live-streamed and recorded.
