Legal principles and technology at the intersection of energy, climate, and environmental law

Research output: Chapter/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

This contribution reviews the legal Principles and its relationship between technology regulation and the intersection of Energy, Climate, and Environmental Law (ECEL). It is intended as an overview of the different organizing principles, of the interactions between them, and of their implications for the regulation of technology. Thereby it departs from three different starting points: (1) the fact that climate change is one of the most difficult challenges of this century; (2) challenges related to the timing in regulatory intervention in ECE technologies: (3) the fragmentation of ECEL. Section 2 elaborates on the three distinct starting points. Section 3 reviews the origins, the characteristics, and the specificities of energy law, climate law, and environmental law. Section 4 discusses the ECEL principles that matter for technology regulation. Section 5 zooms into a specific principle, sustainable development, and explains its role in technology regulation. Section 6 concludes.
