TAIEX-REGIO Multicountry Workshop on State Aid Map in Energy Sector
19 Mar 2019 - 20 Mar 2019
S3 Platform & OtherS3P EnergyS3 Thematic Platform
In the context of the implementation of their S3 in the area of energy, Member States and Regions plan to invest ESI Funds in projects in innovative energy infrastructures, renewables and energy efficiency solutions. These investments need to be compatible with the internal market rules and should not distort competition. However, State aid issues are frequently raised by Managing Authorities as a concern during both conception and implementation of their support schemes in this area.
Taking into account this background, the S3PEnergy, in collaboration with the Andalusian Innovation Agency (IDEA) and the Andalusian Energy Agency, is organising a TAIEX-REGIOMulticountry Workshop on State Aid Map in Energy Sector (ref. 68071), which will bring together state aid practitioners from several EU Member States.
to be a forum for a fruitful discussion on the application of state aid rules in the energy sector (e.g. energy infrastructures, renewables, smart grids, energy efficiency, sustainable buildings, etc.);
to co-construct a State aid map in Energy to facilitate the application of state aid rules to practitioners from Managing Authorities and Intermediate Bodies implementing support measures to energy-related projects under different investment priorities, mainly Thematic Objective (TO)1, TO4 and TO7e.
Participation is open to State Aid practitioners from Managing Authorities and Intermediate Bodies across the EU, and there is no requisite to be member of the S3 Energy Platform to participate in this workshop.
As per the rules of TAIEX-REGIO Peer 2 Peer, the instrument can cover the costs (travel and accommodation) of maximum two participants per Member State. Participants from the host country (Spain) cannot be reimbursed.
