Abstract

The Clean Energy for All Europeans Package
initially introduced by the European Commission
in 2016 (‘the Clean Energy Package’) aims to set
new rules to provide a regulatory framework for
electricity markets characterized, inter alia, by an
increasing share of renewable energy, more
decentralized production and self-consumption as
well as new actors such as ‘active consumers’. The
conventional centralized electricity market model
has been forced to give way to changes, prompted
in particular by the envisaged transition to a low
carbon economy. This means that the rules laid
down in the Third Energy Package of 2009 are
outdated and can no longer accommodate the
changes required by this transition.
