Deconstructing Energy Law and Policy (Paperback)

Raphael Heffron


What are the component parts of successful energy law and policy for nuclear energy in the 21st century? Nuclear power has been a part of energy policies of many countries across the world since its emergence as an electricity provider after the Second World War. Nuclear energy is a low carbon energy source and therefore can contribute to reducing the effects of climate change. However, it is also faced with issues of high cost, risk and waste disposal. Drawing on over 90 interviews completed across Belgium (Brussels), Romania, the United States, and the United Kingdom, this book focuses on the development and formulation of energy law and policy in civil nuclear energy in the EU, the US and beyond. Heffron deconstructs the constituent parts of effective energy law and policy within the complex and often controversial energy industry. Pulling out what has and what has not worked, he suggests ways to improve the delivery of the central aims of law and policy.
