This chapter examines the role of the law in promoting increased access to energy services. In particular, it considers the use of renewable energy as a catalyst for sustainable development, and the role of the law in stimulating its use in areas of the world with limited access, particularly the developing countries of the world. It also considers the role of law in promoting the use of renewable energy to eradicate extreme poverty. Whilst it is concerned with the roles of both international law and municipal law, emphasis is on municipal and, where necessary, regional legal frameworks. The chapter asks whether the hopes of developing countries actually lie in the use of non-fossil fuels, and the extent to which the people actually benefit from moves away from the carbon economy.

Keywords:   law, energy services, sustainable development, renewable energy, developing countries, carbon economy, poverty, non-fossil fuels
