EU Energy Law Volume IX, European External Energy Law & Policy

Edited by: Dirk Buschle

Regarding the European Union's internal energy market, security of supply has been high on the agenda of policymakers for several years, especially in the wake of the last supply crises in 2006 and 2009. Security of supply and the emerging external energy policy are closely interrelated. Evidently both concepts are of high relevance for EU law. Security of energy supply used to be invoked by Member States against the enforcement of the fundamental freedoms in the internal market before it became one of the objectives of energy policy and triggered a string of legislative and regulatory measures on European level, including the creation of new bodies and the more vigorous promotion of infrastructure. External energy policy, on the other hand, and in many respects the strategic counterpart of the strife for security of supply and hitherto a conglomeration of different measures, is increasingly "juridified," as well as "communitized." This book follows the manifold ramifications of European external energy law and policy, including the case law and acquis related to security of supply, project-related interventions through so-called "pipeline diplomacy," the relevance of competition law and international climate change law for external action, natural resources law (including shale gas), etc. It also analyzes the EU's bilateral international relations with countries as diverse as Russia, Ukraine, or Switzerland. A particular focus will be on the law of multilateral organizations of relevance for European energy policy, such as the WTO, the Energy Charter, the European Economic Area, and the Energy Community. *** Librarians: ebook available [Subject: EU Law, Energy Law]
