Call for Papers: OGEL Special Issue on "Impact of the Energy Transition on Water Resources"
11 January 2024
The OGEL Energy Law Journal (OGEL, ISSN 1875-418X, www.ogel.org ) invites submissions for a Special issue focusing on "Impact of the Energy Transition on Water Resources". The editor for this issue is Professor Tina Soliman Hunter, an editor of OGEL, Professor of Energy Law, Director of the Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Innovation and Transformation (CENRIT) and Deputy Director, Transforming Energy Markets Research Centre (TEM) Macquarie University.
From a slow start in some countries, the energy transition is gaining momentum rapidly, with deployment of low carbon energy increasing annually. Whilst legal research considers the implications of the energy transition on human rights, governments, large energy companies, markets, and many aspects of the environment, little legal research has been undertaken that examines the impact of the energy transition on water resources.
This OGEL Special Issue seeks to encourage research publications that address the impact of the energy transition on water resources from legal and policy perspective. We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. These may include scientific studies and how these impact law and regulation. Comparative law approaches to the topic are welcomed. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
- Hydrogen and water use
- Impact of hydropower
- Disposal of renewable energy infrastructure and water table damage
- Impact of tidal energy
- Critical minerals mining and water
- Cooling in thermal processes
- Water and nuclear energy
- Crop cultivation for biofuels and bio energy
- Low carbon is not necessarily low water
- Clean energy and water scarcity
- Water stewardship and energy security
- Water-food-energy nexus and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- Integrated management of water-food-energy
Proposals and Papers should be submitted at your earliest convenience to Professor Tina Soliman Hunter:
Please CC email@example.com when you submit material or have any questions.
Articles accepted for publication before this deadline will also go through OGEL's advance publication process, allowing your work to reach its target audience as soon as the paper completes the peer review and editing process.
The minimum word count of articles should be 5000 words (excluding footnotes, endnotes, appendices, tables, summary, etc.). Articles should include summaries (150-200 words).
