Networks like cables and pipelines are essential for a functioning energy market. This book provides a clear and insightful overview of the legal challenges this poses in the modern world. The construction and use of these networks depends on developments in technology, policies, and legal regulation. Recently, the energy sector has been faced with considerable challenges and changes. Energy liberalisation and deregulation, and the fact that traditional energy supplies like fossil fuels and large hydro plants are increasingly located far from the area of demand has drastically changed the energy landscape. The need for new sources of energy supply can therefore be found all over the world. This book investigates the challenges that face governments engaged in this renewal, particularly since in many cases these networks are, by necessity, international. The construction of new networks always involves the application of planning and environmental laws, and the complications these pose only increase as networks pass through the territory of several different countries. This book analyzes the evolution of this area from several angles, both geographical and legal. The authors combine knowledge and expertise from a variety of sources and backgrounds to present an invaluable overview of the regulatory developments and perspectives that shape the legal frameworks in which governments develop these networks, and the way in which account must be taken of new sources of energy by law-makers.

There are few existential challenges more serious in the twenty first century than energy transition. As current trends in energy production prove unsustainable for the environment, energy security, and economic development, innovation becomes imperative. Yet, with technological challenges, come legal challenges. Zillman, Godden, Paddock, and Roggenkamp assemble a team of experts in their field to debate how the law may have to adapt to changes in the area. What regulatory approach should be used? How do we deal with longer-term investment horizons and so called 'stranded assets' such as coal-fired power stations? And can a form of energy justice be achieved which encompasses human rights, sustainable development goals, and the eradication of energy poverty? With a concept as unwieldy as energy innovation, it is high time for a text tackling changes which are dynamic and diverse across different communities, and which provides a thorough examination of the legal ramifications of the most recent technological changes. This book which be of vital importance to lawyers, policy-makers, economists, and the general reader.

The European Energy Law Reports are an initiative taken by the organisers of the European Energy Law Seminar, which has been organised on an annual basis since 1989 at Noordwijk aan Zee in the Netherlands. The aim of this seminar is to present an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of International, EU, and national energy and climate law. Whereas the first seminars concentrated on the developments at EC level, which were the results of the establishment of an Internal Energy Market, the focus has now gradually switched to the developments at the national level following the implementation of the EU Directives with regard to the internal electricity and gas markets. This approach can also be found in these reports. (Series: Energy & Law) [Subject: International Law, EU Law, Energy Law, Climate Law]

The European Energy Law Report IX presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy and climate change law, as discussed at the 24th European Energy Law Seminar in 2011. The first section of the book presents an analysis of EU case law on the second energy package, as well as a judicial interpretation of the legal limits on government intervention in energy pricing in liberalized markets. The second section focuses on transparency and design challenges in the energy and carbon markets. It examines the new EU Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT) and the impact it has on the upstream gas market. It then discusses the options for including end-users in carbon emissions trading schemes. The third part concentrates on energy infrastructure development in the EU. First, it discusses obstacles to infrastructure development and the European Commission's proposal to overcome them. Then, it considers potential

European Energy Law Report VIII presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy and climate change law, as discussed at the 2010 European Energy Law Seminar. The first section of the book discusses new developments following the energy liberalization process and the Third Energy Package. It includes an overview of recent EU case law on competition in the energy sector. This is followed by a discussion about the cooperation of transmission system operators and, in particular, the role of the European Network of Transmission System Operators, as well as an analysis of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators and its role in enhancing the cooperation of national energy regulators. Finally, this section discusses Regulation 994/2010 as a measure to improve the EU's security of gas supply. The second section deals with the promotion of renewable energy sources in a liberalized market. It examines Directive 2009/28/EC as Europe's new tool to reach its ambitious goals of 20% renewables in 2020. Thereafter, it discusses Denmark's new law providing incentives for the promotion of onshore wind energy. The last section concentrates on investments in the energy sector and looks at climate change. It begins with an analysis of the EU rules concerning energy and investment after the Lisbon Treaty. Thereafter, the focus turns to the Yukos Oil case and international arbitration by foreign energy investors in Russia. Finally, the book examines direct foreign investment and its role for combating climate change. (Series: Energy & Law - Vol. 12)

The European Energy Law Report V presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy law as discussed at the 2007 European Energy Law Seminar. The book consists of four parts. The first part examines recent developments in EU competition law and how it affects the energy sector. In addition to the Energy Sector Inquiry, the profit sharing mechanisms in gas contracts are analyzed by competition law experts. The second part focuses on cross-border trade and its relevance for the establishment of an internal energy market. Two chapters deal with the re-emerging role of energy transit in the EU. This is followed by an analysis of the establishment of regional electricity markets and how to increase transparency in European electricity markets. Liberalizing the energy sector and creating a secure and sustainable energy supply is a difficult balancing act, which is discussed in part three. This is illustrated by an overview of how the EU energy policy has developed since the 1960 and the complexity of the policy goals in the Third Energy Package of 2007. Several legal instruments are being developed to guarantee security of supply and the protection of energy systems necessary to guarantee a regular supply of energy. The final part of the book introduces a complete new development, the issue of Carbon Capture and Storage. In addition to developments on EU level, the authors discuss the national approaches in the UK, Norway, and the Netherlands.
