Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

A Research Agenda for International Energy Law offers a novel exploration into the future direction of research in international energy law, highlighting contemporary themes such as competition for investments, and fair and equitable access to energy.

Utilising international and comparative law methodologies, leading experts examine the profound and urgent changes occurring in the energy sector, many of which are driven by the transition to more sustainable energy production, transport and end-use. Chapters provide discussions on the relationship between energy activities and international law, how the law adjusts to technological innovations, and the issues raised by the energy transition internationally. The book provides a holistic picture of current and future challenges in international energy law and areas for further research.

This thought-provoking Research Agenda will be an essential resource for students and scholars in energy law and policy, trade law, environmental law and public international law more widely. The practical applications of the book will also be beneficial for policy-makers, practitioners and think-tanks.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is absolutely critical reading for energy law academics and practitioners alike. It engages with the most significant debates in the energy sector, such as whether energy law is a separate discipline or what makes energy justice just – providing insightful analysis from some of the leading international energy law scholars in our sector today. I will be prescribing this as essential reading for my students, and my colleagues within the sector, and recommend that others do the same.’
– Penelope Crossley, The University of Sydney Law School, Australia

‘Kim Talus brings together an extraordinary set of authors and takes up a critical set of questions in A Research Agenda for International Energy Law.’
