Green Talent 2012, Komalirani Yenneti, publishes in RELP special issue

Following the Fukushima disaster, Germany’s announcement that it would shutter all of its nuclear facilities by 2022 has had significant ripple effects. Reactions across Europe and around the world have been highly contentious.

The current issue of the Renewable Energy Law and Policy Review contains various contributions addressing the challenges the German Energy Transformation is facing as well as reactions towards the Phase-Out of Germany in various countries. Komalirani Yenneti contributed an article to the special issue “Reactions to the German 'Energiewende'”.

Never has there been a time when so much of the world‘s attention is focused on the rapidly increasing potential and need for renewable energy. The Journal of Renewable Energy Law and Policy (RELP) provides a platform for review and discussion, both in Europe and internationally, of the legal and policy issues surrounding renewable energy. The journal reports on the dynamic and quickly changing developments taking place in Europe and around the world in the renewable energy sector, from bio-energy, solar and wind power to developing technologies like fuel cells and nuclear fusion.

Leading renewable energy scholars and practitioners report on the legal and policy implications of recent technology advances, political and regulatory decisions, market trends, as well as insightful new literature and relevant events. One of them is now Green Talent 2012 Komalirani Yenneti, who published an article titled “The Sun Shines on India? – A Review of the Implementation and Financial Continuum of the National Solar Mission” in the journal's special edition on the German ‘Energiewende’. Her paper explores the implementation of the National Solar Mission in India and the subsequent paradigm shift in market development by identifying the impediments to policy and financial performance and offering some suggestions for overcoming them.
