Abstract

Over the last few years, the energy sector in Europe has undergone rapid change. Following the adoption of the EU Third Energy Package and the Climate and Energy Package in 2007, a wide range of EU laws governing the next phase of the EU Internal Energy Market, climate change objectives, and security of supply considerations have entered into force. This new edition builds upon earlier editions of the work to provide an updated overview of important devlopments at national, international, and European levels, covering the most important principles of international law relevant to the energy sector. The first part of the book provides overviews of international and EU law. This is followed by chapters which look at specific European jurisdictions. A number of key energy-producing jurisdictions are focused on, including France, Poland, and the UK. In addition, a chapter is now included to outline Russian energy law. Written by a team of specialist academics and practitioners, Energy Law in Europe: National, EU and International Regulation offers in-depth coverage of energy law, trade and regulation for both practitioners and academics specializing in the energy sector.
