Innovation in energy law and technology : dynamic solutions for energy transitions

Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export


  • As energy innovation becomes imperative for the environment and energy security, the law must be fleet-footed to evolve in an unwieldy area of policy. This much-needed text assembles experts to analyse the most recent developments, and to postulate how human rights, sustainable development, and the eradication of energy poverty could be achieved.


  • Includes bibliographical references and index.
