Energy Law and Justice for a Better World
The individual chapters in this book have addressed how law can advance energy justice in all its multi-faceted aspects. In turn, this chapter provides summary conclusions drawn from the legal analyses contained in those chapters, emphasising how law is essential to achieving global and national goals for energy justice. In doing so, it provides particular emphasis on the fight against energy poverty, while examining the potential for a variety of existing legal measures to provide solutions to pressing energy justice issues for developing and developed nations. The analysis also highlights the lessons that can be learned for the future energy transition from the case studies of the barriers to energy justice that exist in many jurisdictions examined in this collection. In its survey of how Law can assist in facilitating developments, such as decarbonization, that are needed to transit to a new energy system, it has squarely kept a focus on enabling the transition to take place in the fairest possible way.
