Regulating Energy and Natural Resources by Barry Barton

Book Description

Democratization, globalization, and increased environmental awareness have had a profound impact on the regulation of industry in the energy and natural resources sector. This book analyses the changes in character of the way this industry is regulated, and seeks to make connections with theoretical perspectives on regulation as a major part of the modern legal system. Part I examines the emergence of alternatives to regulation, such as 'soft law' in developing countries, the European Electricity and Gas Directives of 1996 and 1998, the idea of regulation of company structure as opposed to performance, multi-faceted government alternative regulatory instruments, and market mechanics. Part II analyses conventional methods of regulation, and how they have evolved, including case studies from the Netherlands, the USA, Singapore, New Zealand, and the UK. Part III looks at regulatory innovations such as environmental audit, self-regulation, the 'Voluntary Action Plan', private-sector standard setting, and certification. Part IV examines the role of non-state actors, and their response to national and supranational regulatory changes, and globalization. Recent shifts in the perception of energy security, failures in energy company corporate governance, and evolving self-regulatory frameworks renders this a timely and worthy examination of the issues facing the energy and natural resources industry today.

Books By Author Barry Barton

Sharing the Costs and Benefits of Energy and Resource Activity by Barry Barton Sharing the Costs and Benefits of Energy and Resource Activity, Hardback (April 2016)

Energy and resource activities bring benefits for many, but also impose costs on communities. This book uses cases studies from across the globe to examine the emergence of 'sharing' and the legal measures which seek to balance the costs of energy and resources projects.

Property and the Law in Energy and Natural Resources by Barry Barton Property and the Law in Energy and Natural Resources, Hardback (February 2010)

This edited collection examines the multiple interfaces between property law and energy and natural resources law. It deals with perennial questions about the ownership of energy and natural resources and with cutting-edge topics such as the role of property rights in environmental regulation and the property rights of indigenous communities.

Energy Security by Barry Barton Energy Security, Hardback (March 2004)

This volume examines energy security in a privatised, liberalized, and increasingly global energy market. Chapters offer a variety of international, regional, and national approaches to energy security, followed by analysis of the legal provisions relating to the main energy sectors. It also provides environmental and geopolitical perspectives.
