About the Authors
  • In November 2003, the Commission on Environmental Law (CEL) of IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) launched a new scholarly network of environmental law faculties and professors: the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law. The IUCN Academy, a consortium of specialized research centers in university law faculties worldwide, constitutes a learned society examining how law advances a just society that values and conserves nature. As part of the Academy's mandate, a significant topic of interregional research will be identified each year and the results presented at an annual meeting and published for wide dissemination. The timely and challenging research focus for 2003 was "The Law of Energy for Sustainable Development." This volume comprises the contributions of the 2003 conference.

    • Significant research in environment and energy by one of the leading scholarly initiatives in the field
    • Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of sustainable energy law, including papers on the commercialization of renewable energy technologies
    • Written by a range of international experts
