The renewable energy sector is changing rapidly, from funding and legislation through to technology and supply chain. People have relied on many sources for energy in both industry and everyday life, including oil, gas, coal and wood. Renewable energy is now overtaking fossil fuels and as solar energy and wind power become cheaper and more competitive, it is important to understand how the renewable
energy market and relevant law is developing. The Law of Renewable Energy examines the current and future renewable energy options and the legal challenges that surround them. Does renewable mean climate friendly and what about growing crops for energy? If you want to have an understanding of how renewable energy is being used, not just in the UK and Europe but throughout the world, then this is the book for you.
