The Groningen Centre of Energy Law organizes on 28 September 2011 a one day conference in order to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The titel is '
Five Years of Energy Law in Groningen – Academics meet Practice'. During the last five years the Centre has been involved in a wide range of teaching and research activities. Members of the Centre will present their work jointly with a selection of practitioners who have been supporting the Centre during this period. At the same time the conference will illustrate the developments currently taking place in the energy sector and the role of law in this process.
The Groningen Centre of Energy Law (GCEL) was established in 2006/2007 following the appointment of dr. Martha M. Roggenkamp as professor of energy law in 2005. GCEL is part of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen and some 30 researchers have joined GCEL as a result of which research covers a wide range of legal issues affecting the entire energy chain ‘from well head to burner tip’.
GCEL is a unique research centre concentrating on energy law. Its interdisciplinary approach is guaranteed through its active participation in the University’s Groningen Energy and Sustainability Programme (GESP) and close contacts with industry and governments.
