Creating legal instruments that incorporate renewable energy policy interests is a complex, but not insurmountable, challenge. Renewable energy technologies (“RETs”) provide clean, safe, and lasting energy supplies. The finite nature of hydrocarbon fuels, the controversy surrounding carbon sequestration, the debate over “clean coal,” and the safety and waste management concerns regarding nuclear energy have resulted in RETs emerging as promising alternatives. Successful examples of the implementation of RETs demonstrate the importance of integrating this technology into local, national, and international legislation.
