The Members’ Committee of the Irish Centre for European Law is pleased to announce its second event Reforming and Revising European Energy Law: Cross-Cutting Impacts.

The Honourable Mr Justice Maurice Collins will chair a panel of expert speakers comprised of:
  • Alex White SC, Director General of the Institute of International and European Affairs, on the legal obligations on the State with respect to energy and climate policy.
  • Professor Lisa Ryan, University College Dublin, addressing the electricity market, climate technology and the EU’s response to the Inflation Reduction Act.
  • Dr Muireann Á Lynch of the ESRI detailing the electricity market changes and the impact of Brexit on the all-island electricity market.
  • Peter McLay, Partner at Mason Hayes & Curran, providing an overview of the legal framework for energy law in Ireland and the effect of the EU’s proposed reforms.

In response to the energy crisis, and the volatility in electricity prices, the European Commission is expected to publish its plans for reform of the electricity market design. These reforms are likely to have a considerable effect on utilities, energy traders and consumers.

This event will be an opportunity for legal practitioners, professionals in the energy sector, and policy makers to understand the legal, policy and economic context for these reforms, and their likely effects.

The event will take place from 5.00pm on Monday 27 March 2023 at the new ESB Head Office, 27 Fitzwilliam Street Lower, Dublin 2. Complementary refreshments will be provided.
