Energy Expert Witnesses


What is an energy expert witness?

Energy expert witness candidates will have experience in the business of producing and/or selling energy, which includes natural gas, coal, electricity, nuclear energy, or renewable energy such as solar and wind. Energy expert witnesses are often professional engineers (PE) or have other advanced degrees (PhD) in sustainable energy, advanced energy systems, or energy and resources. Energy expert witnesses may be members of professional organizations such as the Association of Energy Engineers, the Association of Energy Services Professionals, or the American Public Gas Association.

What types of cases require an energy expert witness?

Legal cases involving energy could include intellectual property, such as patent infringement cases or trade secret disputes. Depending on the circumstance, an energy subject matter expert might also provide litigation support for personal injury cases, workplace accidents, improper handling of hazardous materials and waste, or construction defects and mechanical failure.

Cases may involve the business of energy production, employee relations, or business valuation.

What litigation support work might an energy expert witness be expected to perform?

Litigation support by an energy expert witness could include research and authoring expert reports, providing expert opinions, deposition testimony, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request an expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek an energy expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
