Electric cars are now a common sight and will soon be ubiquitous, but where do you re-charge them? Property owners can benefit from the coming boom in electric car usage by installing charging points on their land.

Property owners can also benefit from the green energy revolution by developing solar or wind electricity generating facilities.

The National Grid also needs countless additional facilities to convert all this new electricity into useable voltages, and places to store any surplus electricity until it is needed.

This book guides the property lawyer through the documentation using straightforward language, and provides useful drafting tips. It will prove to be a valuable guide to every practitioner who has to give advice to property owners looking to make the most of the changing energy market.
