Alternative energy, also known as renewable energy, is energy derived from regenerative resources and are alternatives to conventional energy sources such as fossil fuel, oil, coal and natural gas. An alternative energy systems expert witness typically has a background and extensive experience in solar energy, mechanical engineering, hydrogen fuel, energy efficiency, and/or renewable energy systems.
Litigation support by an alternative energy systems expert could include analysis, forensic engineering, expert opinion, an expert report, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a qualified subject matter expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek an industry expert in aerial photographs for pre-litigation consulting work. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise in the subject, but must also possess the ability to explain evidence to a juror.
Cahn Litigation Services has completed numerous searches for an expert witness in the area of renewable energy, providing candidates for each case to the specifications provided by the law firm. Whether it’s for a patent case or for pre-litigation engineering work, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn the search around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony to hone in on the perfect expert for the job at hand.
