Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
ISBN: 9781784719463
Release Date: 2016-04-29
Genre: LAW

Written by a global group of leading scholars, this wide-ranging Research Handbook provides insightful analysis, useful historical perspective, and a point of reference on the controversial nexus of climate change law and policy, intellectual property law and policy, innovation policy, technology transfer, and trade. The contributors provide a unique review of the scientific background, international treaties, and political and institutional contexts of climate change and intellectual property law. They further identify critical conflicts and differences of approach between developed and developing countries. Finally they put forward and analyse the relevant intellectual property law doctrines and policy options for funding, developing, disseminating, and regulating the required technologies and their associated activities and business practices. The book will serve as a resource and reference tool for scholars, policymakers and practitioners looking to understand the issues at the interface of intellectual property and climate change.

Bausteine der Energiewende

Author: Olaf Kühne
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783658195090
Release Date: 2017-12-04
Genre: Social Science

Die Energiewende verändert in Deutschland mit dem Ausstieg aus der Kernkraft und dem Ausbau erneuerbarer Energien in weitreichender Weise bisherige Strukturen der Energieversorgung und wirkt sich dabei räumlich stark aus. Biomasse-, Windkraft- und Photovoltaikanlagen stellen einige der physisch sichtbaren Manifestationen dar. Hinzukommen neue Stromtrassen. Diese Entwicklungsprozesse laufen allerdings keineswegs konfliktfrei ab. Das Buch gibt Einblicke in unterschiedliche Facetten, unterschiedliche Bausteine der Energiewende und ordnet diese ein. Die Herausgeber Dr. Dr. Olaf Kühne ist Professor für Stadt- und Regionalentwicklung an der Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen. Dr. Florian Weber ist Akademischer Rat im Forschungsbereich Stadt- und Regionalentwicklung an der Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen.
