Published this past May, The Law of Clean Energy comprehensively catalogs the country’s schizophrenic tapestry of energy regulations that exist across jurisdictions large and small. The book, edited by Professor Michael B. Gerrard, offers in-depth discussion and analysis of mandates, tax incentives, and permitting guidelines for efficiency and renewables, as well as federal, state, and local regulations. It also explores industry-specific energy use and various technologies for creating and storing renewable energy.  

Gerrard, director of the Law School’s Center for Climate Change Law, has included in the appendix a 50-state survey of laws governing energy efficiency and renewables, a resource he hopes will help readers navigate these disparate regulatory standards. The survey is divided into three sections: financial incentives; rules and regulations; and policies, plans, and government affiliations.
