dr Maciej M. Sokołowski zdjecie

"Energy security is one of those concepts, which everyone seems to know. The problem starts when the lights go out"

"The idea of civic energy sector and energy cooperatives seems to be an answer that responds to the social and financial problems encountered in the development of local energy industry"

"Modern economy and energy require an approach that is open to the discourse and participation of different actors at all levels of decision-making"

"Monopolisation does not serve the state, economy or citizens. Monopolisation serves monopolies"

"My day-watchman state is the centre ground occupying a place between interventionism and laissez-faire"

"I'm fascinated by watching how much we owe to electricity. How much we owe to Tesla, Edison and many other precursors of its use"

"The problem of long-term planning in economy is that it is long-term. Its creators do not think about implementation - the contractors bear in mind the planning process"

February-March research stay in Greece

Created at 10 / 03 / 2018

Talks on the European energy and environmental law, especially in terms of the EU new policy frames as well enhancing partnership between the School of Law of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and University of Warsaw were the aims of my March research stay in Greece.

The February-March stay in Greece was an opportunity for me to delve into different approaches to environmental and energy regulation. I used the time in Greece for the needs of my research on the Industrial Emission Directive (Directive 2010/75/EU on industrial emissions (integrated pollution prevention and control)). Apart from it I had the interesting academic discussions on the EU energy and environmental law with the Greek colleagues and students as well as met the Polish exchange students at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
