Call for Articles

The George Washington University Journal of Energy and Environmental Law

The George Washington University Journal of Energy and Environmental Law (JEEL) is calling for full length articles for its spring issue. Articles should address topics that explore critical issues at the intersection of energy, environment and climate. We are particularly interested in articles addressing international treaties, legislative initiatives in other countries, U.S. federal and state legislation, and case law developments dealing with issues such as:

  • energy generation and distribution with a special focus on renewable and distributed sources;
  • facility siting, including transmission infrastructure;
  • mechanisms for enhancing energy efficiency in all use sectors;
  • public benefit funds, net metering requirements, renewable portfolio standards and other forms of utility regulation;
  • implementation of a “smart grid;”
  • climate change and carbon sequestration;
  • air and water pollution issues related to energy generation;
  • water use and water conservation related to energy production;
  • land use questions;
  • assessment of the environmental impacts of energy production and energy-intensive activities; and
  • resource extraction

JEEL is published twice each year as a supplement to ELI’s Environmental Law Reporter (ELR) News & Analysis.
