The energy law and energy policy of the EU and Euratom have become more and more complex in recent years. Today these areas feature a multitude of layers concerning not only regulation of the power industry, but also security of energy supply, climate change, consumer needs and technical innovation. This Textbook serves as a much-needed introduction to this distinctive field.

Written in an accessible and engaging manner, with a clear pedagogical structure, the book concentrates on providing an overview of EU energy law, and provides pointers for further reading on each of the component parts. Stimulating end-of-chapter questions facilitate discussion and classroom use, whilst for readers with little experience of the EU, the book provides a separate chapter outlining the institutional structure and functioning of the European Union and Euratom in the field of energy policy.

Key Features:-

  • Summaries of treaty rules, case law and legislation give the reader a clear understanding of the complex legal framework of this policy area.
  • Review questions and further reading lists make it the ideal starting point for those coming to the subject for the first time, and for those with some prior expertise.
  • Chapter giving an overview of the functioning of the EU and Euratom in this important field.
Each of these features ultimately helps readers to familiarise themselves with one of the most vibrant fields of European law and policy. This introductory textbook will be the first port of call for all those, both students and practitioners, who need to understand EU and Euratom energy law.
