Energy Law governs the use and taxation of energy, both renewable and non-renewable. These laws are the primary authorities (such as case law, statutes, rules, regulations, and edicts) related to energy. In contrast, energy policy refers to the policy and politics of energy. It also includes the legal provision for oil, gasoline, and "extraction taxes”. The practice of energy law includes contracts for sitting, extraction, licenses for the acquisition and ownership rights in oil and gas both under the soil before discovery and after its capture, and adjudication regarding those rights.
