Moreover, Denver is located in the center of the "new energy economy," with many federal offices working on renewables and energy efficiency right on the DU Law doorstep. And there are clean tech companies and renewables business groups that are setting up shop on the front range of the Rocky Mountains.
Added together, Denver is the place to be and DU Law is the place to study about renewable energy.
The four courses mentioned above are:
- Renewable Energy Project Development by Adjunct Professor Mark Safty, a partner at Holland & Hart
- Renewable Energy for the 21st Century: Technology, Policy, Markets, by Adjunct Professor Bob Noun
- Renewable Energy Project Finance by Adjunct Professor John Herrick of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP
- Renewable Energy Law by Professor K.K. DuVivier, author of the forthcoming Renewable Energy Reader
Professor DuVivier notes, “To do a good job for their clients, lawyers developing renewable energy policies or representing renewable energy companies need to have a good understanding of the technologies those resources entail. Here at DU Law, we have the unique advantage of being able to give our students the opportunity to view those technologies and the cutting edge research taking place just down the road at NREL’s research facility.”
