This comprehensive volume of the Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law provides an overview of the major elements of energy law from a global perspective. Based on an in-depth analysis of the energy chain, it offers insight into the impacts of climate change and environmental issues on energy law and the energy sector. This timely reference work highlights the need for modern energy law to consider environmental impacts and promote the use of clean energy sources, whilst also safeguarding a reliable and affordable energy supply.

Featuring 65 entries written by leading international scholars and practitioners in the field, the volume is organised into eight thematic parts, each focusing on a specific area of the energy sector. Topics covered include international energy cooperation, the regulation and governance of energy markets, legal regimes governing renewable energy sources, regulation of the transport and supply of energy, consumer protection, and energy savings mechanisms.

Providing an authoritative analysis of key developments in this significant area of law, this volume will be an invaluable resource for researchers, academics and students. Its insights into governance and regulation in the sector will also prove useful to practitioners and policymakers.
Critical Acclaim
‘Eighty authors from around the world provide a comprehensive study of energy law. Their 65 entries provide clear explorations of the science and technology, commercial use, and law and regulation of energy sources and uses. Special attention is given to the environmental and social consequences of energy uses ranging from climate change to energy poverty. Scholars, practitioners and interested citizens could all find no better guide to energy's multiple roles in today's and tomorrow's world.’
– Donald Zillman, University of Maine School of Law, US

‘This volume is edited by a formidable set of editors who have a stellar set of authors writing for them on an encyclopedic set of topics related to the broad theme of energy law, climate and the environment. I cannot think of many scholars or practitioners unaffected by the issues covered. Many of the contributors have practical experience with their assigned topic which gives the analysis extra bite. The book is most, most useful both as a practical reference guide on the law as it stands including its history and practical interpretation, and as an analysis of how the status quo ought to be changed to address the crucial issues raised in it.’
– Geert Van Calster, KU Leuven, Belgium
