The Hellenic Energy Regulation Institute (HERI) is an initiative launched by Metaxas & Associates Law Firm (www.metaxaslaw.gr) in an effort to establish an open scientific forum, where energy experts and people interested in energy regulation will have the opportunity to elaborate on interdisciplinary energy issues.

The Institute’s main objective is to promote research and academic dialogue on Greek and European Energy Law and Regulation issues from a legal as well as from an economic standpoint. Furthermore, HERI aims at fostering an open dialogue between energy professionals and people active (or interested) in the energy industry, in order to disseminate knowledge on the relevant national and European legal framework. Our aim is to critically observe the enforcement of Energy Law both at EU and national level while detecting important recent developments and trends in this area.


Hellenic Energy Regulation Institute (HERI) aspires to become a scientific legal forum where important energy-related issues are addressed. As a think tank on energy regulation issues, the HERI examines and elaborates on all interesting legal aspects that arise in the European and Greek energy market as well as their interrelation with technical and economic parameters that are inherently linked with the evaluation of regulatory decisions.


The Hellenic Energy Regulation Institute, having a strong international orientation and devotion to European energy regulation, mainly focuses on:

  • Carrying out scientific research on a wide spectrum of energy matters and serving the academic dialogue.
  • Bringing together academics, business executives and researchers to enrich the relevant public debate and help evaluate core regulatory decisions.
  • Contributing to the efficient and sustainable implementation of the strategic energy policies, in conjunction with the updated EU and Greek legislation on electricity, natural gas and renewable energy sources.
  • Periodically organizing seminars and workshops to promote the acquired knowledge and create a framework where academics and practitioners interact in order to elaborate on legal, social, economic and technical information regarding the European and Greek energy market.
