As of 1 September 2020 there launches, within the Centre for Antitrust and Regulatory Studies (CARS) at the Faculty of Management at the University of Warsaw, the Climate & Energy Laboratory. Establishment of the Climate & Energy Laboratory will allow for performance of a wide array of activities aimed at learning – scientific research and studies. It will be an opportunity to tighten the cooperation between science and public administration through exchange of experiences and realization of common, interdisciplinary activities. The Laboratory will initiate and edit non-serial and serial publications, organize scientific conferences, as well as workshops and practical trainings. Within the framework of CARS, we intend to develop wide cooperation with other national and international entities dealing with economic regulation and energy law.

We assume that in the near future the major areas of works of the Laboratory should be as follows:

  • new trends in the European energy sector: the Energy Union, and – on the other hand – supporting the local / citizenly energy sector;
  • the European industrial strategy and construction of the uniform energy market;
  • protection of cross-border energy investments;
  • renewable energy sources;
  • energy storage;
  • climate, environment and energy;
  • market & sector coupling;
  • diversification of gas supplies;
  • cooperation of Member States of the EU within the scope of energy and gas sector with countries of the Eastern Europe;
  • changes in the energy sector resulting from development of electromobility;
  • carbon capture and storage;
  • energy in times of economic crisis (influence of the crisis on energy supplies, functioning of the energy market and the problem of so-called energy poverty);
  • cybersecurity in the energy sector.
