EU climate law is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing areas of EU law. This exciting new textbook provides a comprehensive account of essential EU climate mitigation law. In addition, the contents cover a number of important and topical issues related to the EU’s efforts to tackle climate change.
Written by some of the key thinkers on EU climate law from the University of Groningen, this innovative textbook takes a broad approach to climate law and presents all available legal instruments to combat climate change, ranging from greenhouse gas emissions trading to the use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency mechanisms.
After providing a definition of climate law, the book examines the main climate targets and instruments of the EU. Their impact on energy network management, competitiveness and multi-level governance is also discussed.
Each chapter addresses the relevant directives and regulations as well as their implementation issues and explains how this affects current policy and academic debate. The chapters therefore not only describe but also critically reflect upon EU climate law.
