European Energy Handbook

Arntzen de Besche has written the Norwegian chapter in Herbert Smith Freehills’ tenth edition of the European Energy Handbook.

This year's edition provides a legal framework of the energy sector in each jurisdiction, covering the structure and design of the gas and electricity industries, the regulations governing them, as well as existing and planned projects such as cross-border interconnectors. Different types of generation and production such as renewable technology, nuclear energy, and upstream are examined, and legal and regulatory issues surrounding these are set out.

This edition also reports recent legal and commercial developments in each jurisdiction and covers issues as diverse as the design of electricity markets, the reform of the support schemes for renewable electricity, new cross-border interconnections, taxation issues for the upstream sector and significant commercial transactions and privatisations in the energy sector.
