Months of entry
The energy sector is changing as a result of market liberalization and climate change concerns. The EU presents a typical example of this yet similar developments can be found in other parts of the world. Our specialized Energy and Climate Law programme will present the main principles of energy market liberalization and how climate law affects the energy sector. The EU will often be used a case example, and some of the questions this programme examines will include:
- How does EU law influence national laws when it comes to energy?
- What did liberalization do for the energy sector? And did it change the relationship between the state and the energy industry?
- Should energy companies be concerned with climate change?
