Brussels to host renewable energy law event March 8 to focus on potential, need for renewable energy regulation surrounding development, implementation, commercialization of solar, wind, geothermal, tidal
January 16, 2012
– An event entitled 'Renewable energy law 2012: market design and system transformation for a renewable energy future' will take place on 8 March 2012 in Brussels, Belgium.
With increasing interest in renewable energies, there is a parallel focus on the potential and need for renewable energy regulation. In the twentieth century, energy law focused mostly on natural gas regulation, but was expanded to include other areas of energy regulation.
This area of energy law relates primarily to the transactional legal and policy issues that surround the development, implementation and commercialisation of renewable sources of energy, namely solar, wind, geothermal and tidal. Renewable energy law also encompasses policies that relate to renewable energy and legislative instruments that further encourage its growth.
The event will be a forum for stakeholders and law professional to exchange views and challenges of the renewable energy sector and get the latest developments regarding the European Commission's Roadmap for 2050.
