Never has there been a time when so much of the world's attention is focused on the rapidly increasing potential and need for renewable energy. The Journal of Renewable Energy Law and Policy provides a platform for review and discussion, both in Europe and internationally, of the legal and policy issues surrounding renewable energy. The journal reports on the dynamic and quickly changing developments taking place in Europe and around the world in the renewable energy sector, from bio-energy, solar and wind power to developing technologies like fuel cells and nuclear fusion. The journal serves a growing international community of renewable energy practitioners, lawyers and thought leaders with timely updates on legal and policy issues impacting renewable energy technologies and development. Each issue reports on trends and critical issues from the European Union and its active Member States, cutting edge experience from North America, Australia, and Japan, as well as opportunities and challenges in emerging markets and various corners of the developing world. Leading renewable energy scholars and practitioners report on the legal and policy implications of recent technology advances, political and regulatory decisions, market trends, as well as insightful new literature and relevant events. Above all, the journal provides a discussion forum and source of ideas and opportunities about critical issues of renewable energy - issues that will likely change our world.
