ABSTRACT
Fossil fuel dependence threatens environmental preservation as well as the stability of our economic and social institutions. The time is ripe for a transition away from fossil fuel over-consumption and toward renewable energy deployment. This article is an analysis of current public efforts to provide renewable energy incentives and promote wide-scale deployment. Effective initiatives require coordination between public actors and policies and a cohesive renewable energy policy strategy. Currently, governmental efforts are tangled in a complexity of actors, policies, and barriers. This analysis determines that public actors at all levels of government must work together to shape a viable and comprehensive renewable energy legal framework.
