Renewable Energy Law and Policy Review
The Journal of Renewable Energy Law and Policy provides a platform for review and discussion, both in Europe and internationally, of the legal and policy issues surrounding renewable energy. The journal reports on the dynamic and quickly changing developments taking place in Europe and around the world in the renewable energy sector, from bio-energy, solar and wind power to developing technologies like fuel cells and nuclear fusion.
The journal serves a growing international community of renewable energy practitioners, lawyers and thought leaders with timely updates on legal and policy issues impacting renewable energy technologies and development. Each issue reports on trends and critical issues from the European Union and its active Member States, cutting edge experience from North America, Australia, and Japan, as well as opportunities and challenges in emerging markets and various corners of the developing world.
Leading renewable energy scholars and practitioners report on the legal and policy implications of recent technology advances, political and regulatory decisions, market trends, as well as insightful new literature and relevant events. Above all, the journal provides a discussion forum and source of ideas and opportunities about critical issues of renewable energy.
Carbon & Climate Law Review
A journal on climate regulation and the carbon market
As climate policies evolve around the globe, attention is shifting from their conceptual design to the challenges of implementation. Where theoretical concerns once dominated, legal professionals are now called upon to ensure smooth operation of the regulatory framework. No area reflects this better than the carbon market, where each transaction is subject to sophisticated contractual arrangements, liability rules, accounting practices, and other mandatory constraints.
Responding to the growing demand for a discussion forum on these issues, the Carbon & Climate Law Review strikes a balance between the interests of practitioners, notably those engaged in the rapidly evolving carbon market, and a more doctrinal focus, alternating legal policy recommendations with timely articles on legal aspects of carbon trading and other dimensions of greenhouse gas regulation.
A section on current developments updates readers on recent market trends, political decisions, new literature and relevant events. Most importantly, however, the Carbon & Climate Law Review brings together representatives from the legal discipline and other stakeholders in one specialised journal, allowing them to engage in a dynamic debate on the law of climate change.
