Ownership Unbundling and National Constitutional Law and EU Law: A Brief Summary of the Relevant Legal Issues

  • Tilman Michael Dralle
Part of the European Yearbook of International Economic Law book series (EUROYEAR, volume 5)


While this book analyzes the unbundling and unbundling-related measures in the EU energy sector from the perspective of international economic law, it is nonetheless important to briefly summarize the main points of the past debate on the legality of ownership unbundling measures under national constitutional law and EU law, a debate which began in 2006 and subsided after the adoption of the Third Energy Package in 2009. This will provide the necessary context and background for the subsequent discussion of WTO law and international investment law.
