Groningen Centre of Energy Law and Sustainability
The Groningen Centre of Energy Law and Sustainability (GCELS) brings together expertise from all branches of law within the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen to develop cutting-edge research and educational programmes relevant for the energy transitions.
Its research covers the entire energy chain as well the transitions necessary to move towards a more sustainable society. This includes all legislation and regulation applying to the production, transport, storage and supply of energy, the promotion of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency, the need to secure energy supply, as well as climate action and environmental protection.
Energy and sustainability issues come together by addressing the legal dimension of the energy transition processes in which climate considerations play an important role.
