Cleantech Law Partners Publishes New Book Focused on the Legal and Policy Aspects of Renewable Energy Projects

March 25, 2019

As the world begins to embrace alternative sources of energy, endless opportunities await us. However, with every new industry comes the sometimes daunting legal complexities. Cleantech Law Partners, a full-service renewable energy law firm, has compiled its passion and knowledge of the legal and policy aspects of renewable energy law into an invaluable book, entitled Renewable Energy Law & Policy.

This valuable treatise, published by LexisNexis®, is for those new to renewable energy law, as well as a solid resource for seasoned legal professionals who have been working on renewable energy deals for decades. It includes an overview of the renewable energy industry, practical practice perspectives, policy discussions, recent industry developments, trends that are shaping the future of the industry, challenges faced by this growing practice area, and sample agreements that are indispensable in many renewable energy transactions.

Renewable Energy Law and Policy covers the legal and policy-related aspects of most renewable energy deals, including issues pertaining to structuring, real estate, finance, land use, contracts, environmental, corporate, tax, and securities law.

This nascent industry is maturing. Technology is making it increasingly more efficient to generate electricity from the sun, wind, biogas and geothermal resources. As a result, lawyers are fielding an increasing number of questions from landowners, project developers and non-renewable energy producers that are looking to break into the renewable energy sector. Legislators are also taking notice of the unprecedented economic potential and positive environmental impact of renewable sources of energy over the last decade.

The book, Renewable Energy Law & Policy, helps practitioners, students, academics and laypeople navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of this new legal specialty and industry. It guides the reader through the intricacies of funding, building, and operating a renewable energy project and explains the dynamic policies that are shaping this new industry.

Jack Jacobs, Cleantech Law Partners’ managing partner, and the book’s co-author, said, “I hope that this book is used by attorneys and landowners alike as they set out to build renewable energy projects. Law and policy are essential tools in helping the renewable energy industry grow and I’m sure this book will help readers navigate and simplify this complex and evolving new specialty of law.”
