OGEL special issue on "Comparative Energy Law" - published


(Update March 2011 - special published)

This Special Issue is devoted to the comparative analysis of regulatory systems in the oil, gas and electricity sectors. By 'comparative' we mean that kind of research which tries to identify similarities and differences among the regulatory systems of different countries or regions. Several reasons explain why comparative knowledge is of primary importance in the energy regulators' and energy lawyers' toolbox.

The purpose of this special is to start an academic reflection on the advantages of a comparative approach for energy law and policy. Hopefully, this Special Issue will foster a dialogue on how to carry out comparative research and increase its relevance for everyday legal practice in the energy sector. In the coming years OGEL will be eager to host additional contributions which adopt a comparative perspective.
