This article focuses on the distinction between the two core notions, i.e. existing aid and new aid. The recent judgment of the CJEU in the Alouminion case confirms that any extension of the duration of a given State aid measure may prove to be sufficient to establish a new aid regime, which must go through the Article 108 (3) TFEU preliminary examination procedure, even in the rare case where the extension is deprived of legal basis, e.g. a contract, and originates from a national court interim order.

Keywords: Existing Aid; New Aid; National Courts; Interim Order; Extension of Duration of State Aid Measure.
