Windenergienutzung in Europa: Rechtliche Fragestellungen by Linus Yves Grellet

By Linus Yves Grellet

Die Fragestellung der vorliegenden Arbeit versucht der Thematik nachzugehen, inwiefern rechtliche Hindernisse einer Einbindung von Elektrizit?t aus Windkraftgestehung in die nationalen bzw. in die deutschen Stromnetze entgegenstehen. Dabei werden erstmalig Fragen des Elektrizit?tswegeplanungsrechts aufgeworfen sowie auf die wirtschaftlichen und technischen Hintergrundinformationen des zwischenstaatlichen Elektrizit?tsverbunds eingegangen. Die gegenst?ndliche Arbeit ist insofern bemerkenswert, als sie versucht elektrizit?tswirtschaftsrechtliche Aspekte der erneuerbaren Energien mit Fragen der Daseinsvorsorge in Relation zu setzen. Der Autor versucht sowohl einen Br?ckenschlag zum Wettbewerbsrecht im Elektrizit?tsmarkt zu bauen, als auch die zukunftsorientierte Komponente einer sicheren Stromgewinnung unter Einbindung von regenerativ gewonnenen Energien zu betonen bzw. auf die strukturelle Wichtigkeit des Netzinfrastrukturerhalts hinzuweisen.

Allgemeiner Teil des Bürgerlichen Rechts: Das Rechtsgeschäft by Werner Flume

By Werner Flume

Das Recht der Personengesellschaft wird von der deutschen Literatur des 19. Jahrhunderts nach der Systematik des Grundrisses von Georg Arnold Heise (1. Aufl. 1807) nicht dem Personenrecht des Allgemeinen Teils des burgerlichen Rechts zugeordnet, und das BGB ist dem gefolgt. Zum BGB behandelt die Literatur in Ubereinstimmung mit der Legalordnung die Perso nengesellschaft im Schuldrecht. Dem folgt selbst Gierkes Deutsches Privat recht, wenn Gierke auch im Personenrecht des Allgemeinen Teils in dem Ka pitel "Personenrechtliche Gemeinschaften" allgemein von den "Gemein schaften zur gesamten Hand" und damit auch von der Gesellschaft handelt. Die Legalordnung des BGB ist in der Einordnung des Rechts der Perso nengesellschaft dadurch bestimmt, dass dem Ersten Entwurf des BGB, wie es in den Motiven heisst, die "gemeinrechtliche Auffassung vom Begriffe und Wesen der Sozietat" zugrunde lag, dass der Gesellschaftsvertrag "nur ein obli gatorisches Rechtsverhaltnis unter den Kontrahenten" begrundet. Die Perso nengesellschaft als Gesamthandsgesellschaft gehort jedoch ebenso wie die ju ristische individual dem Personenrecht an. guy konnte sogar der Ansicht sein, dass die Personengesellschaft als Personengruppe oder Personenverband noch eher als die juristische individual in das Personenrecht geh

Taking the forgotten realities and results of those energy buildings under consideration, his accomplished felony research persuasively argues the necessity for a brand new concept of monetary power.

The e-book starts off with a dialogue of the insufficiency of antitrust suggestions and tools. the writer offers an monetary background of monopolistic colonial platforms and its impact at the improvement approach, and gives an alternative paradigm of felony structuralism and social association. He is going directly to discover the production of monetary strength constructions with a cogent dialogue of industry strength, felony buildings and the dominance of universal pool assets. An exam of the dynamics and behaviour of energy constructions follows, with specific consciousness paid to exclusion and collusion, criminal monopolies and the exploitation of common assets. the writer exhibits in actual fact how the unwanted effects of financial energy constructions at once effect the social and financial improvement of societies.

This new criminal idea, with its foundation within the realities of financial constructions, will turn out a robust replacement to the conventional marketplace rationality paradigm.
