Abstract

In this article, I analyse the case law of the Court of Justice of the EU on restrictions on the free movement of the various types of energy under the EU Treaties. Particular emphasis is laid on the recent judgments in Cases C-204/12 Essent Belgium and C-573/12 Alands Vindkraft, where the Court controversially upheld protectionist measures adopted by the Member States in relation to renewables.

JEL Classification: EU law, energy law, free movement
