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 research stay in Belgium

Created at 15 / 02 / 2018

Strenghtening the network between the KU Leuven and University of Warsaw together with discussion on the current issues in the European energy and climate law were the aims of my research stay in Belgium.

During my research stay in Belgium at the KU Leuven I conduct a review of the current public law regulation in the European energy and climate law, including an analysis of the relevant EU policies. These included the university deliberation as well as work on my future paper on the energy cooperatives. To delve into this topic I met the Belgian energy experts representing the energy cooperatives federation.
