The Renewable Energy Reader is a concise, reader-friendly sourcebook for U.S. renewable energy law. Each chapter provides historical background as well as illustrations and technology charts to give readers context for better understanding renewable energy sources and related legal issues. Each chapter also includes closely-edited excerpts from some of the most prominent primary and secondary legal sources - articles, cases, statutes, and regulations - highlighting current and potential legal challenges to the advancement of renewable resources. The Reader provides an accessible reference for lawyers, law students, policy-makers, and the general public, providing an overview of the significant legal implications of renewable energy development.

K.K. DuVivier is a professor of law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. She worked as a geologist before law school and, prior to entering academia, practiced law in the natural resource area for eight years first at the national law firms of Arnold & Porter and Sherman & Howard and then as an Assistant City Attorney in the land use department for the City and County of Denver. In developing the Reader, Professor DuVivier visited renewable energy facilities across the country and collaborated closely with renewable energy experts, including several from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), a 32-year leader in renewable energy research and development.
