Focus on Energy 6th Edition

Energy Insights 2023: The Newest “Focus on Energy” Publication

Karanović & Partners is pleased to announce that we have published the 6th edition of our Focus on Energy publication. Following the official launch during the meeting of the Energy Law Group in Zagreb on 29 September 2023, this edition is now accessible, inviting discussions with regional and European energy experts on the latest and most relevant topics in the field.

The ongoing global energy crisis, characterized by tectonic disturbances in the energy landscape, is anticipated to have long-lasting effects on the global economy, safety and public health. Escalating prices and dwindling quantities of energy resources, disruptions in the supply chain, inflation, and increased lending costs are among the challenging aspects. In response, the European Union has intensified efforts to enact regulatory reforms, expediting the progress of new renewable projects. Remarkably, this energy crisis has propelled the momentum of the green transition. Energy security has emerged as a critical prerequisite for national safety.

The crisis has underscored the high cost of abandoning the green agenda. It serves as a compelling reminder that all stakeholders must proactively engage to ensure a sustainable energy future.

This is why the focus of this edition is on green energy, sustainable developments, and initiatives around them. In addition to in-house contributions, it includes the collection of papers written by distinguished guest contributors, gathered by our Senior Partner Miloš Vučković and Partner Petar Mitrović.
