Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) represented Madrid-based Gnera Energía – a major trader and service provider in renewable energy in the European electricity market since 2005 – before the Regional Administrative Court of Milan (“TAR”), on its request for the annulment of a sanction from the Italian Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environment (“ARERA”) regarding electricity imbalances.

With sentence no. 1657/2021, the TAR upheld Gnera Energía’s appeal and, in line with recent rulings by the Council of State (Italy), censured ARERA for failing to conduct a preliminary investigation.

The WFW Italy Regulatory team advising Gnera Energía on the matter comprised Partner Francesco Piron and Counsel Giannalberto Mazzei.

Francesco and his team have also scored successes in three other recent ARERA  sanction annulments regarding electricity imbalances – for further information please see ARERA success for Made in Energy, ARERA success for Gelsia and ARERA success for Tea Energia.
