Joint purchasing of energy

On the 9th of June, The Bergen Centre for Competition Law and Economics and the Research Group for Natural Resource Law, Environmental Law and Development Law hosted a hybrid seminar on joint purchasing of energy with a special focus on competition law barriers and geopolitical implications of joint purchase of gas.

There is a public debate now regarding the function that joint gas procurement might play in energy procurement in Europe. This calls for clarification on exactly which problem joint procurement should address, which entails the scope of gas contracts that would be considered, economic implications and how implementation might work.
