Renewable Energy Law and Policy covers the aspects of most renewable energy deals, including issues pertaining to structuring, real estate, finance, land use, contracts, environmental, corporate, tax, and securities law. As this nascent industry matures, and technology makes it increasingly more efficient to create electricity from the sun, wind, and geothermal resources, lawyers have begun seeing an increase in questions from landowners, project developers and non-renewable energy producers that are looking to grow in, or break into, the renewable energy sector. Legislators have also taken notice of the unprecedented potential and real growth over the last decade. This book helps practitioners, students, and laypeople navigate the complex and ever changing landscape of this new area of law. It was written to help the reader deal with this evolving reality by explaining the dynamics of the industry and the existing and developing regulatory and competitive environment.
Among the important areas addressed are the following:
• Legal and policy issues that impact the development, implementation and commercialization of renewable energy projects.
• Structuring, land use, siting, and finance issues encountered by developers of renewable energy projects.
• Investing in renewable energy projects.
• Renewable energy development in other countries.
• Building a renewable energy project.
• Selling renewable energy.
• Tips for drafting and negotiating key renewable energy documents.
