Professor Felix Mormann published a paper on clean energy policy and finance in the Brookings Institution's series Remaking Federalism / Renewing the Economy. In "Smarter Finance for Cleaner Energy: Open Up Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) to Renewable Energy Investment,"

Professor Mormann and his co-author Dan Reicher from Stanford University make the case that MLPs and REITs extended to renewable energy projects will help promote growth, move renewables closer to subsidy independence, and broaden the base of investors in America's energy economy. Professor Mormann's scholarship explores the regulatory and policy challenges along the path to an environmentally and economically sustainable energy future. He teaches in the areas of environmental law and energy law.
