Energy Justice has emerged as a pressing concern in many parts of the world, driven by factors as diverse as global inequality and poverty, climate change and environmental degradation, and the need to ensure effective economic transitions in the eneegy sector. In this chapter, the editors assess the current trends in energy law and energy justice in terms of fairness, sustainability, and universal access. In this assessment, they take into account the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the realities of different energy markets. The Introduction canvasses the variety of approaches to determining energy justice which are covered in the subsequent chapters. The approaches to justice are premised on four themes: distributive; procedural; restorative and recognition justice that are explored in theoretically informed chapters and in the case studies grounded in national and regional experience.

Keywords:   energy poverty, fairness, sustainability, universal access to energy, sustainable development goals, energy justice
