State Aid for Energy and Environment

In order to meet the ambitous climate targets, Member Sates can rely on the Energy and Enviromental State Aid guidelines (EEAG) when supporting relevant projects. As compliance with EU State aid rules is of crucial importance due to their complexity in the field of energy and environment, this Lexxion Training Hybrid offers you best practice sessions and case studies after receiving a thorough introduction to the principles and an update on recent case law.

The event will take place as a hybrid event, which gives speakers and participants the opportunity to participate face-to-face or online via a live stream. If this is your first online course with Lexxion, here’s a quick guide.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.

Starting from € 990,- (excl. VAT)

Reservation: You are welcome to reserve your seat, which is financially non-binding. For this, please drop me an email.:

Cancellation: The cancellation of participation must be in writing and is possible free of charge up to 14 days before the start of the event. In case of no-show or cancellation later than two weeks before the date of the event, the entire event price plus VAT is due.



The  EU  environmental  and  energy  aid  guidelines have been  fundamentally  revised  and  extended.

In the programming period 2014-2020 the focus is more than ever on investments in sustainable energy in order to achieve the EU2020 targets: The shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors as well as a strong emphasis on renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE), resulting in almost a doubling of investment amounts in sustainable energy over 2014-2020.

Compliance with EU State aid rules is of crucial importance and still remains challenging for State aid practitioners due to their complexity in the field of energy and environment: The revised Environmental and Energy Guidelines (EEAG) have strengthened the authorities’ approach to assess whether State aid exists or is compatible with the EU internal market. Since the scope of the guidelines has been extended to the energy field, it now includes measures related to energy infrastructure projects, generation adequacy measures and energy intensive users. Furthermore, the General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER), by which a huge number of measures are covered, has considerably been altered.

Who should participate?

Managing Authorities and Intermediate Bodies involved in programmes for Energy and Environment

  • Ministries for Energy and Environment
  • Energy Agencies
  • National, Regional and Local Development Agencies
  • Development banks, public and private banks
  • Consultants and lawyers in the Energy and Environment sector
  • Beneficiaries of ESI Funds and/or EU direct programmes


A Lexxion Training provides you with a comprehensive overview of the current State aid control system in different sectors. Presentations, practical exercises and group work will enable you to apply the guidelines in the respective sector in practice.

This training will be conducted by renowned experts from EU and Member States’ institutions, as well as leading law firms and consultancies.

Our training method combines the three stages of learning to ensure that participants obtain the best possible understanding of EU rules:

  1. Identification of the main points or principles,
  2. Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
  3. Application of the rules and principles.

Participants will be actively involved in the course. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical issues. You will have ample opportunities to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

Course materials are available for download after the event.
