Genre: Energy policy

This groundbreaking text both explains and provides legal solutions to interlocking problems of global energy poverty, environmental degradation, and injustice. The first segment examines the jurisprudential lineages of justice and law within Western, Islamic, Buddhist and Confucian traditions, and argues that law can and should offer answers to global problems of energy and poverty. The second segment explores the facts pertaining to energy poverty among the "other third" of the world, consisting of 1.3 to 2.5 billion peoples. It explains how the lack of access to basic clean and affordable energy results in the premature deaths of millions, primarily among women and children, and afflicts millions more through sickness and ill-health. The third and fourth segments explore the importance of energy justice within the internationally-accepted foundational legal norm of sustainable development. Finally, the book explores national model laws and how they offer blueprints for promoting global energy justice.
