Building upon the experience gained in Leipzig (Germany) in 2011, the Groningen Centre of Energy Law , in cooperation with the Hasselt University and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research , organises a conference to bring together the disciplines of environmental law and energy law in order to explore and develop a workable legal concept of sustainable energy within the European Union. This conference represents the second step in the road for the establishment and functioning of the European Environmental Law Forum, which aims at supporting the intellectual exchange, the development and the implementation of Environmental Law in Europe. We are all aware of the risks of conventional energy production for the environment and human health. This notwithstanding, as Bryn Cartledge wisely wrote in 1993, “few governments can give absolute priority to minimizing the adverse environmental impact of energy generation” (Energy and the Environment, p. 1). Focusing on the European Union, the Union itself and each of its Member States has to balance economic welfare, social welfare and environmental welfare, i.e. they have to find ‘ sustainability ’. Whereas sustainability features prominently in the environmental and energy provisions across the European Union, it is still a vague concept.
