The energy transition not only makes our energy supply green(er) but also more decentral with small-scale projects instead of big power plants. The energy transition also creates new dependencies, for example between the lessor and the lessee of solar panels or heating systems. Property law struggles to facilitate the energy transition. With a focus on Dutch law and the home jurisdictions of the participants, this seminar explores the energy-related challenges facing the law of property and comparatively discusses the solutions developed in scholarly literature and practice.

The seminar addresses the following topics:
- the energy transition in its legal, economic and political context;
- a comparative brush-up of the participants' knowledge of ownership and limited property rights;
- the legal design of renewable energy projects;
- the particular challenges posed by condominiums and tenant-landlord relationships; and
- the constitutional protection of property and positive obligations to retrofit buildings.
