The European Energy Journal (EEJ) offers the practitioner and the academic pro-active information on energy law and policy throughout Europe. It reports and comments upon relevant developments in the areas of internal market, competition law, energy efficiency, renewable energies, climate change, infrastructure, security of supply, and foreign energy policy.

Each issue includes regular reports on legislative initiatives, case law and country developments. Providing accessible articles and straightforward information on all political, legal, economic, environmental, industrial, financial and technical aspects of energy, the EEJ aims to be the leading cross-border platform for a multi-disciplinary dialogue between all actors: energy providers and energy consumers, law makers and law firms, industry and investors, scholars and politicians.

EEJ is published four times a year (in January, April, July and October), and the EEJ will also publish digital newsletters on a regular basis.
