Energy justice in a changing market: an inter-disciplinary workshop, May 2018

This was an interdisciplinary workshop in the field of energy poverty and energy justice attended by scholars and practitioners from across the globe. A key issue was how to deliver accessible and affordable energy whilst moving towards a low-carbon energy supply and a more de-centralised competitive market.

The main outcome of the discussion was the recognition that although energy poverty and energy justice have been researched from a variety of different disciplinary viewpoints, there has been limited engagement with legal scholarship on energy law and regulation. This is a significant gap, as policy objectives must be implemented through legal means and may involve the active participation of regulatory bodies.

Opening this dialogue will create innovative ways of thinking about the issues, both from policy and academic perspectives. Further dialogue will continue on this issue under ENGAGER, a research network that draws together scholars and practitioners based both within and outside Europe focusing on complex energy poverty challenges, using COST networking instruments.
