Current Renewable Energy Policy Assessments An Overview

International bodies such as REN21, the World Energy Council and the World Bank have undertaken efforts to assess the RE profile of entire regions and in some cases, of specific countries, based on different sets of indicators (see Renewable Energy Policy Assessments - Overview).  Also, there have been efforts among international agencies to determine the underlying institutional principles and policies for effective RE development. While important conclusions can be drawn from successful case studies regarding conditions needed to enable RE development, a clear method is needed for the analysis, planning, and implementation of a country-specific public policy process for RE development. Based on this, IDE-E has developed three analytical and assessment tools to facilitate stakeholders in developing sustainable and lasting local RE development:

Public Policy Framework for Renewable Energy Development

Country Assessments for Analysis, Planning and Implementation

The Global Renewable Energy Needs Assessment (GREEN Assess)
