This comment from Emory Law Journal argues that the current legal framework in the United States is inefficient in stimulating continuous investment in electricity generation from renewable resources. The start-and-stop approach created by reliance on tax incentives, a patchwork of state laws, and the inability of many power producers to secure long-term power purchase agreements fail to provide potential investors with the long-term predictability they need. An examination of Brazil’s legal framework for investment in renewable energy demonstrates that a mechanism that assures a certain return on investment over a long period of time is crucial to promote continuous investment in renewable energy projects and related industries.
