Abstract

This book offers an introduction to energy law and policy both for students who seek to practice in the field and for those interested in better understanding this fascinating, critical area of law. It introduces the key federal, state, and local government actors that play differing roles in energy controversies and unpacks the multi-jurisdictional approach to energy regulation pervasive in the United States.

The book explores the laws and policies governing the extraction, use, and disposal of renewable and non-renewable energy resources and provides in-depth coverage of U.S. regulation of the two major energy systems — electricity and transportation. In doing so, this book breaks away from the traditional approach of looking at energy resources one at a time. Instead, it provides a more holistic view of the field, emphasizing the major themes that run through energy law — regulation of market power, federalism tensions, and the global transition toward cleaner energy.

Energy Law and Policy contains cases, sample statutes and regulations, and pertinent excerpts from energy law and policy experts. These policy-oriented, often empirical materials offer the necessary building blocks for a public law course, particularly one that covers a rapidly transitioning field. The book is organized into three parts that introduce students to the fundamental aspects of the energy sector, energy law, and the most pressing energy topics of the 21st century.
