Hannah Kruimer studied law at the University of Groningen. She holds a LL.M. degree in business law. Her research at the Groningen Centre of Energy Law focuses on the way in which the EU principle of non-discrimination applies to the operators of energy systems in general and to gas transmission system operators in particular.
The three primary questions of her research are the following: (i) What is meant by 'discrimination' in the context of Article 13 (1b)?; (ii). How is the principle of non-discrimination implemented in national law in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany?; and (iii). What are the implications of the non-discrimination rule for TSOs in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany?
Within the faculty of law of the University of Groningen The Groningen Centre of Energy Law coordinates all research involving (parts of) the energy sector. Its research covers the entire energy chain ("from well to burner tip") and includes all legislation and regulation applying to the production, transmission and supply of energy, the promotion of renewable energy sources, the need to secure energy supply as well as issues concerning climate change and environmental protection.
