Renewable Energy from Wind and Solar Power: Law and Regulation (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


In a world that is shifting away from fossil fuels in response to the threat of climate change, the UK's low carbon policies have seen renewable electricity capacity increase by more than three times since 2010. As renewables provided one third of the UK's electricity generation in 2018 it has meant that the UK has already exceeded its domestic 2020-21 target of 30%. The future is clearly one of unremitting growth in electricity generation from wind and solar farms.

Renewable Energy from Wind and Solar Power: Law and Regulation is concerned with the law and regulation of electricity generation in the case of the two most popular sources of energy derived from renewable resources. It covers up-to-date national policy and guidance relevant to electricity generation collected from renewable resources. There is also coverage of the powers of local planning authorities and of the Secretary of State, along with devolved powers in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, in dealing with onshore and offshore energy projects along with the impact of Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects under the 2008 Act.

This book also covers consents under sections 36 (onshore and offshore wind generation) and 37 (overhead lines) of the Electricity Act 1989 and the grant of FEBA licences from the Marine and Fisheries Agency in the case of offshore consents. The book also deals with the availability of financial assistance for the generation and export of renewable energy to the grid. The second half of the book deals with the basic technology involved in wind and solar power and the planning regime is explained by a number of useful case studies involving challenges to energy proposals.

Renewable Energy from Wind and Solar Power: Law and Regulation will be an invaluable reference for lawyers, planning professionals and operators in the relevant sectors. It will also be of interest to others in showing how the industry is developing and of the regulatory processes involved in securing consents for the commercial development of energy from wind and solar power.
