Global: Legal Frameworks Governing Exploration, Exploitation and Production of Geothermal Energy

BBA has published the Geothermal Transparency Guide

Reykjavik law firm BBA, publishes a guide to legal frameworks in geothermal energy

The handbook is intended to provide an insight into the legal frameworks governing exploration, exploitation and production of electricity from geothermal resources, in countries where geothermal capacity is being harnessed or is available for harnessing.

The hope is that the handbook will increase transparency and awareness of some of the rights and obligations governing applications for licenses for geothermal development and will serve as a first step in an eventual international cooperation for the purposes of creating industry standards in this field.

The Geothermal Transparency Guide features chapters on Iceland, Canada, Chile, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, USA and Vietnam.
