In recent years, the use of renewable energy has become of global significance. In the context of fluctuating oil prices and evidence of renewable energy’s potential climate change benefits, several governments have adopted policies to expand renewable energy production. Renewable energy is attractive, particularly to developing countries, as it allows access to energy and promotes energy security. On the other hand, inadequately regulated renewable energy, such as biofules, can produce wide-ranging problems. The challenges that arise from the limitations of renewable energy development implicate a wide range of legal, political, and social issues.
This session will examine
• current issues, upcoming developments, and the future of law and policy in the renewable energy sector including the biofuels;
• the legal and policy challenges that all countries face with regard to renewable energy;
• voluntary and mandatory rules concerning renewable energy in both developed and developing countries;
regulations that govern renewable energy in a sustainable manner.

For informal discussion please email the stream convenor, Professor Jona Razzaque
