Description

The 2009 CEES Energy Justice Conference took place at the University of Colorado Law School on October 23rd and 24th, 2009. It featured 11 sessions, more than 40 speakers, and attracted over 200 attendees. The Conference brought together leading international and U.S. decision-makers in politics, engineering, public health, law, business, economics, and innovators in the sciences to explore how best to address the critical needs of the energy-oppressed poor (EOP) through long-term interdisciplinary action, information sharing, and deployment of appropriate sustainable energy technologies (ASETs).

The Colorado Journal of International Environmental Law & Policy (CJIELP) at the University of Colorado Law School produced a special feature volume on the issue of Energy Justice. The special issue on Energy Justice, v. 21 no. 2 (2010), is composed of articles from various presenters at the 2009 Energy Justice Conference. It also includes a transcript of Dr. Kandeh Yumkella’s keynote address, where Dr. Yumkella eloquently provides a context for the discussion of Energy Justice (see 21 Colo. J. Int'l Envtl. L. & Pol'y 277 (2010)). This volume helps frame the questions presented by Energy Justice through the different perspectives of authors.
