This paper describes the nexus of energy justice, supply and security. It advances the case that energy justice is the relatively new concept in this triangle of issues and an area requiring research. There are three central tenets of energy justice: distributional, procedural and recognition justice. Each of these tenets figures at certain stages in the energy supply chain and as a consequence there is an effect on energy supply. An example of the wind energy sector in Denmark is presented which demonstrates how the application and promotion of energy justice can enable the growth of an industry supply chain. This in turn contributes to increased energy security and national economic growth.
