The green revolution is well and truly happening, and a common question from landowners and occupiers alike is ‘can I install electric car charging points?’ followed by ‘can I make money by letting the public charge their cars?’

In this virtual classroom seminar, Alastair Frew discusses the latest developments in the green energy market and focuses on the finer points of an electric car charging point lease before discussing various ways that your client can lease land for the generation of renewable energy.
