BY: Leigh Hancher(Editor), KEHOE Anne Marie(Editor), HUHTA Kaisa Iida Amanda(Editor)
In an effort to reframe how we communicate research and critical thinking, the purpose of this publication is to provide an open-access e-book which guides you through the significant issues currently at play in EU energy law and policy, connecting the dots between several online initiatives of the Energy Union Law Area and contextualising the material in the wider framework of EU law. The materials span a range of media, drawing from our webinar series, our long-form podcast series, our video lectures, and a selection of our publications, each of which acts as an ‘e-chapter’ which gives an in-depth insight into a development in the field. This publication is intended to be a living document which will evolve with the changing narrative of EU energy law and policy.
