Chapter Summary

Energy law is mostly found in the form of statutes and treaties and is considered a variant of public administrative law like most forestry-related laws. Many developing countries have become members of the UN Convention on Climate Change, which obliges them to follow the commitments under the Kyoto Protocol. The clean development mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol envisaged the development of a market-based mechanism for industrialized countries so that they can meet their commitments for emission reduction while at the same time, moving towards clean technology and energy efficiency in developing countries. Energy policy and law regime in countries of the European Union, the USA, and the UK are fairly advanced as these countries have restructured the former following various international treaties and obligations. There is, therefore, a necessity of India rewriting its energy policy and laws following the methodology of policy transfer and lesson drawing.

Keywords:clean development mechanism; climate change; energy law; European Union; India's energy policy; Kyoto Protocol; lesson drawing; policy transfer methodology; UK; USA
