Abstract

State aid rules are an integral component of energy regulation in the European Union. They establish negative and positive limits for the provision of state aid (support) to undertakings involved in the generation, transmission and/or distribution of energy in the internal market. These rules, Articles 107 and 108 TFEU, preclude Member States from benefiting an undertaking by granting some advantage, unless the benefit is compatible with the internal market and the measure has been both notified to and approved by the Commission, in order to ensure competition in the market is not distorted.

Keywords: state aid, energy law, capacity mechanisms, EU law
