Energy transition policies are likely to fundamentally redesign the energy matrix on which large portions of the economy are currently based. International law, particularly trade and investment law, were historically developed to place constraints on major regulatory changes in order to ensure a certain degree of liberalisation. This talk will explore the legal space left by international law for the introduction of energy transition policies as well as the strategies to minimise potential frictions.
