'Europe Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2016” is among the latest region specific policy reports from GlobalData, which offers comprehensive information on major policies governing renewable energy markets in the region. The report covers 26 key countries in the region, providing the current and future renewable energy targets and plans along with the present policy framework, giving a fair idea of overall growth potential of the renewable energy industry in each of the countries. The report also provides major technology specific policies and incentives provided in the each country.
The report is built using data and information sourced from industry associations, government websites and statutory bodies. The information is also sourced through other secondary research sources such as industry and trade magazines.
- The report covers policy measures and incentives used by European countries to promote renewable energy.
- The report details promotional measures in the region both for the overall renewable energy industry and for specific renewable energy technologies that have potential in the region.

Government policy structure and growth measures for renewables play an important role in renewable energy development. Renewable support schemes such as Feed-in Tariffs (FiT), quota obligations, capital grants, and subsidies have been instrumental in promoting the growth of the renewable energy industry in Europe. Additionally, governments in certain countries provide sector-specific support schemes such as premium tariffs and technology-specific funds, in order to promote key renewable technologies.
Of the various support mechanisms in Europe, FiTs have emerged as a particularly effective way of promoting the renewable industry. The technologies that have benefited most from these tariffs are wind and solar power. FiTs are being used to promote renewable energy in Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands and Turkey.
The EU directive on renewable energy has set a target for each member state to increase its renewable energy share to 20% of gross final energy consumption by 2020. The member countries can choose a mix of renewables to achieve the overall target.
GlobalData's report "Europe Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2015", presents an in-depth analysis of the renewable energy policies across major countries in Europe. The report provides the current and future renewable energy targets and plans along with the present policy framework, giving an overview of growth potential of their renewable energy industry.
The material was prepared in August, 2015.
