This book focuses on the relationship between environmental protection and the production, distribution and consumption of energy and the regulatory and policy challenges that are felt in the transition to a sustainable energy system and more generally a low carbon economy.
Today, an increasingly important part of EU environmental law concerns this
energy transition, triggering regulatory experimentation and judicial activity at
myriad levels. ‘Sustainable energy united in diversity – Challenges and
approaches in energy transition in the European Union’ contains contributions
by Sandy Gaines, Wybe Douma, Yelena M. Gordeeva, Vicky Karageorgou, Ralph
Frins, Hendrik Schoukens, Ellen Margrethe Basse, Birgitte Egelund Olsen, Helle
Tegner Anker, Magali Dreyfus, Louise du Toit, Wolfgang Köck, Hartmut Kahl
and Nicolas Pradel showing the widely differing national policy initiatives in the
diverse legal frameworks working – more or less successfully – to attaining the
overarching 20-20-20-objectives the EU has set itself. With a foreword by
Rebecca Harms, co-president of the Greens/EFA Group and member of the
European Parliament, this book not only explores the national and European
regulatory activities, but also finds a regulatory dynamic that identifies a
European framework as a valuable way forward.
