Besides the assessment requirements in Article 107 (1) and (3) TFEU EE&MC especially provide analyses according to Article 106 (2) TFEU. In both the European School of Thought is used.
In assessing whether State aid exists or rather an exemption can be applied, legal components and economic analyses are essential. If, for example, market failure is present and the balancing-test under Article 107 (3) TFEU yields that aid can cure, State aid can be authorised.
In the application of Article 106 (2) TFEU quantitative calculations are necessary. EE&MC applies economic-based analyses that complement the legal approach of the EU Commission.
EE&MC has broad experiences in carrying out such economic analyses.
