Abstract

In the last few years, regulatory sandboxes were adopted to facilitate deployment of innovative technologies. These legal regimes enable the testing of innovative technologies in a real-life environment, products, services or approaches that are not fully compliant with the existing legal and regulatory framework. They are operated for a limited time and in a limited part of a sector or area. The purpose of regulatory sandboxes is to understand the opportunities and risks that a particular innovation carries and to develop the correct regulatory environment to accommodate it. This article aims to discuss a recent proposal in the field of energy law that aims to promote the emergence of new technologies, in the light of these developments.
