Essential EU Climate Law Summary

Essential EU Climate Law by Edwin Woerdman

EU climate law is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing areas of EU law. This exciting new textbook provides a comprehensive account of essential EU climate mitigation law. In addition, the contents cover a number of important and topical issues related to the EU's efforts to tackle climate change. Written by some of the key thinkers on EU climate law from the University of Groningen, each chapter addresses the relevant directives and regulations as well as their implementation issues, explaining how this affects current policy and academic debate. The chapters therefore not only describe but also critically reflect upon EU climate law. Key features include: * Comprehensive introduction to EU climate mitigation law * Discussion of the climate targets and instruments of the EU * Review of the relevant climate-related directives and regulations * Analysis of their implementation problems * Relationship between climate law and broader issues including energy law * Educational design based on reviews by climate law students The combination of educational design and analytical accuracy makes the textbook suitable for both students and professionals. This introduction is highly recommended for courses on EU climate mitigation law, also in the context of broader curricula on climate law, energy law and EU law in general.

Essential EU Climate Law Reviews

'Woerdman, Roggenkamp and Holwerda have written a comprehensive and readable introduction to EU climate law. All targets and instruments of the EU to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are investigated, including related issues such as energy network management. Useful for every reader from undergraduates to professors and policymakers, this volume ought to be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in climate change mitigation policy.' -- Daniel H. Cole, Indiana University, US
'It establishes the foundation for an understanding of climate change law within the EU and would be of use to those who need to follow, understand and implement the measures described. . . this is an extremely useful resource, demonstrating good value for money.' -- Gina Nason, Emerald Insight, UK
'We highly recommended this introductory text for courses covering EU climate mitigation law, and for those involved in the context of broader curricula on climate law, energy law and EU law in general as these areas of law emerged as major subjects in their own right in the next few years.' -- The Barrister Magazine
