Renewable Energy Law | L4511

The development of renewable energy sources has grown exponentially both nationally and worldwide. The increased appetite for renewable energy sources has driven a need for more information about those sources and the significant legal implications arising from the development of those sources. This course is organized by resource--solar, wind, hydropower, biomass, and geothermal. It will focus primarily on critical legal issues in tort, property, and contract areas raised by the expansion of these key renewable energy sources. The course also will address the role of energy efficiency and some of the broader legal hurdles facing renewable energy use from a nationwide perspective.
