Although energy is part of our life, we paid big amount of cost for it. As it has a great economic value, we produced energy in an unconscious way, so we polluted earth. At the end, we understood the value of environment and gave up our bad habit of extreme producing methods including pollution. Secondly, we realized that energy resources are not unlimited. These situations delivered us into clean energy consuming and producing. Governments must promote for renewable energy consumption and production. Renewable energy consumption and production cannot increase without government help or government actions so governments have to be a pioneer for renewable energy. Legal provisions are also important for civil rights (both public and private). Renewable energy actions may violate fundamental rights and freedoms such as property, health right, and also commercial rights like competition and right of initiation. These issues must be regulated by governments under the administrative law principles. Clean energy sector is not only a need but also it is a market. Although it is mostly in private sector area, it still has public interest notion.
