Energy - EnvironmentEnergy in all its forms: a comparison of France and Germany - Tuesday, April 24, 2018

A comparison of legal and practical approaches on either side of the natural border formed by the Rhine was the guiding theme of this meeting. The morning was devoted to studying the different systems used to organize and manage the energy sector.  In the afternoon, the French and German models implemented to carry the energy transition forward were compared in order to highlight their dissimilarities, deeply rooted in the very different notion each of these States has of its local organization and the roles that public and private players should have.
