By signing the Energy Community Treaty in 2005, countries in the Western Balkans, Ukraine and Moldova agreed to abide by the European Union's competition rules. But a number of energy sector investments are being planned that may not so far have taken adequate account of state aid rules. This briefing provides a summary of relevant EU requirements and highlights the risks of failure to take them into account. Case studies include projects from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, and Ukraine.
