The energy sector is highly regulated and at the same time characterized by rapid developments and changes in the technical, economic and legal framework. The number of energy law disputes is increasing. The desire for low energy prices and short commitment periods is conflichting with the need for security of supply. Long-term contracts are under scrutiny. Energy efficiency is aimed at achieving climate protection goals; It is unclear who ultimately has to bear the costs.
