European Commission Launches Consultation on Draft 2022 State Aid Guidelines on Climate, Environmental Protection and Energy

Latham & Watkins LLP

The Development -

..On 7 June 2021, the European Commission (EC) published a draft Communication on the “Guidelines on State aid for climate, environmental protection and energy 2022” (CEEAG) that will replace the 2014 “Guidelines on State aid for Energy and Environmental Protection” (EEAG). The EC has added climate to the title of EEAG to underscore the increased focus on climate protection.

..The draft CEEAG reflects the new climate, environmental, and energy priorities of the Green Deal and sets out the conditions for EC approval of State aid granted by EU Member States. The CEEAG will be adopted by the end of 2021.

..Before adopting the final version, the EC is seeking stakeholders’ views. The public consultation is open until 2 August 2021. This consultation follows the November 2020 publication of an Inception Impact Assessment and a public consultation through online questionnaires on the revision of the EEAG.
