What did liberalization do for the energy sector? And did it change the relationship between the state and the energy industry? Should energy companies be concerned with climate change?
Today, the energy sector is changing as a result of market liberalization and climate change concerns. The EU presents a typical example of this scenario but similar developments can also be found in other parts of the world. This specialized program will present the main principles of energy market liberalization and how climate law affects the energy sector, with the EU often used as a case example.
The LLM Energy and Climate Law program is registered under the LLM CROHO label Energy and Climate Law (66829).
