Description

While there are many differences between renewable energy development, like solar and wind, and more traditional energy development, like drilling and mining, they have one thing in common: the land upon which the development takes place. This presentation will look at how different kinds of energy development have all utilized the lease as the means for securing the land rights necessary for energy development. We’ll review the important ways that these different energy leases are the same, especially execution and property description, as well as how they address common important questions like time (term), money (royalty), and competing land uses (development rights) in significantly different ways.
