Łukasz Jankowski, a partner heading the energy law practice at Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland, is one of the authors of a commentary on the Energy Law, published by C.H. Beck.
The commentary focuses on pointing out the practical consequences of applying the provisions of the Energy Law. Doctrinal, theoretical analyses were limited to the necessary minimum - the commentary was conceived and prepared as a help for practitioners in the daily application of the Energy Law.
The book describes the legal status as of June 2017. It takes into account the novelty of abandoning the regulation of natural gas prices by introducing into the Energy Law the regulation of a regulation providing for the exemption of energy companies licensed to trade in gaseous fuels or having a concession for the trading of natural gas abroad and conducting business activity in the field of gas fuel sales from the obligation to submit a tariff for approval by the President of the Energy Regulatory Office. Increased reporting obligations of energy companies and liquid fuel importers to Poland were indicated. Also discussed were the extended mandatory reserve requirement for natural gas and the new legal forms of fulfilling this obligation. The commentary includes changes resulting from the entry into force of the new energy efficiency act passed on the 20 May 2016. The book presents an analysis and practical approach to the new solutions and obligations brought by the recent reforms of the Energy Law.
