About the Authors
  • Cross-border trade in electricity is rapidly expanding as a result of technical innovations, economic and geopolitical developments, and the ongoing decarbonisation of the electricity sector in response to climate change. The expansion of electricity networks and the integration of increasing shares of renewable energy (RE) electricity into the grid have made long-distance electricity flows both feasible and desirable. Drawing on the work of experts in trade and energy law and policy, and offering novel, multidisciplinary perspectives on the rapidly evolving landscape shaping international trade in electricity, this book examines the most important challenges - technical, economic, legal and policy-related - posed by long-distance and sustainable electricity trade. The book explores the regulatory implications of the policy instruments aimed at supporting RE electricity and considers how best to promote greater overall coherence in international electricity governance.

    • Meets the need for an informed discussion in the rapidly evolving field of international trade in electricity, particularly renewably produced electricity
    • Illustrates the foundations of the vision of a global electricity grid, and connects it to the debate on the decarbonisation of the electricity sector
    • Analyses the main challenges posed by the changing landscape of (sustainable) electricity trade in the multilateral trading and investment framework
