This talk will address the growing tendency of states to preempt local control over the regulation of oil and gas and renewable energy development. It will argue that legislatures and judges considering energy preemption questions should recognize that there are numerous components of a broad regulatory area such as oil and gas regulation, including land use, technical and operational, and financial regulations, among others, and that different levels of government might best control these different regulatory components.
