State aids in the energy sector

The annual meeting of the Association of Competition Economics took place in Mannheim on 5-6 December 2014. David Spector chaired a session on the economic analysis of state aid in the energy sector. One of the topics that was discussed by the panel was the interplay between national policies targetting carbon emissions (such as feed-in tariffs for renewables or carbon taxes), the EU-wide emissions trading scheme, and aid schemes that are notified to the Commission.
