This fourth volume of the ELRF book EU Energy Law and Policy Issues, as with the previous versions of the book, offers an overview of some of the most recent developments taking place in the EU energy law and policy sector. In this respect, the reader will find a number of contributions which provide detailed and critical views on some of the main issues in this area.
Over the years the Energy Law Research Forum or “ELRF” has confirmed it has a role to play in the energy law and policy debate. Today, the ELRF includes most of the younger generation of EU energy law specialists with an academic interest, and the book has become a reference for research and literature, as well as for the Court of Justice of the European Union.
This edition of the book covers topical issues ranging from exemptions and derogations in the EU energy acquis, pricing, access, investments, nuclear energy, external energy relations as well as the role of regulatory authorities in the EU and beyond. The book will surely prove to be an essential piece of reading for lawyers, legal advisers, academics or students engaged in the field of energy law.
