Key Learning Object
- Gain an understanding of the key challenges and impacts of evolving renewable energy laws that are impacting and influencing both developed and developing countries on the quest for net zero
- Become familiar with the key issues and problems regarding the establishment of infrastructure and what this means for the renewable energy supply chain.
- Consider the implications of some of the operational issues and legal underpinning of mechanisms such as ‘constraint payments’ and ‘carve out’ options within contracts.
- Understand how some governments incentivize the growth of renewable energy
- Have awareness of competition law and its ramifications for the renewable energy industry
- Gain an insight into what ‘emission trading’ is and what this means for renewable energy
About the Course
As the world moves ever closer towards the ‘net zero’ goal, the demand for energy continues to increase globally. Rising populations and emerging economies all require energy, yet the traditional hydrocarbon-based suppliers’ provision is in decline due to the continued evolution of alternative or renewable sources of energy.
As Renewable Energy (RE) continues to mature and contribute more to the world’s energy requirements, so too must the legal regimes and regulations that underpin it. It becomes imperative to have an established framework and regulatory system to provide certainty, stability and structure for all concerned. The duty that we all have to protect and preserve the environment, how RE is and will be incentivized – yet competition must remain on ‘a level playing field,’ how pollution is to be controlled through mechanisms such as emissions trading – these are only a few of the areas in which legal certainty and consistency must be created and maintained.
This course has been specifically designed to be an immersive experience for the delegates. Focus throughout is on open dialogue and problem solving through discussion of case studies that will address specific issues and complement the topics presented.
