Updated Report on North and South America Renewable Energy Policy Published by MarketPublishers.com

LONDON – Renewable energy plays a key role in governments’ strategies for curbing CO2 emissions, as well as for enhancing energy security. At present, many government programmes focus on reducing renewable energy technology costs via technological and organizational means. Some countries are introducing targets requiring that a certain share of electricity generation be based on renewables. Renewable energy will probably be made still more competitive through policies seeking to internalize the environmental costs and other externalities associated with electricity generation, including the establishment of a market value for CO2 emissions.

The programmes that governments could devise vary according to market situations. There are three primary potential commercial markets for renewables – utility power, distributed markets and rural off-grid markets. Each poses a different competitive challenge.

The updated research report “North and South America Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2010” developed by GlobalData focuses on the implementation and impact of policy initiatives on the growth of renewable energy in North and South America. It features the market’s growth drivers, discusses the policy initiatives and legislation adopted by the governments in the analyzed regions to encourage growth and investments in the renewable energy sector. The study covers policy instruments such as Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), feed-in tariffs and government programs. Furthermore, various fiscal and financial measures such as tax credits, tax reforms, subsidies, low interest loans to promote the growth of North and South American renewable energy sector are addressed in the review as well.
