Felix Mormann is Associate Professor at Texas A&M University School of Law and Faculty Fellow at Stanford University’s Steyer–Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance.

Drawing on his background as an internationally trained corporate and energy lawyer, Mormann currently investigates domestic and international regulation and policy related to clean-energy technologies. His often–comparative research starts from the premise that environmentally sustainable energy solutions require an economically sustainable policy landscape to leverage necessary investment.

Rev. 189 (2017), Clean Energy Federalism, 67 Fla. L. Rev. 1621 (2015), Beyond Tax Credits – Smarter Tax Policy for a Cleaner, More Democratic Energy Future, 31 Yale J. Reg. 303 (2014), and Enhancing the Investor Appeal of Renewable Energy, 42 Envtl. L. 681 (2012). Professor Mormann’s work has been widely cited, including before the U.S. Senate. He advises federal policymakers on clean energy and energy efficiency.

Previously, Mormann was a research fellow and lecturer-in-law at Stanford Law School and a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), where he conducted research for his doctoral dissertation. Mormann worked as a corporate and energy lawyer for some of Germany’s premiere law firms. As a management consultant for McKinsey & Company, he advised international clients from the high-tech sector. Professor Mormann holds a German JD and a JSD from the University of Passau School of Law as well as an LLM from UC Berkeley School of Law.
