The growth of the US renewable energy sector has been led by the state-level Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) and other tax incentives and subsidies. The RPS places an obligation on power producers to supply a specific percentage of their power from renewable energy sources. Production Tax Credit (PTC) and Investment Tax Credit (ITC) were instrumental in renewable power development, especially for wind and solar power. Some states in the US have also introduced Feed-in Tariff (FiT) schemes, which have been very successful in promoting the renewable energy industry, making the US a leader in solar and wind energy

In Canada, the government is using ecoEnergy and FiTs to Mexico and Brazil use capital subsidy and rebate schemes, and some of their states also offer FiTs. Policy measures such as renewable energy acts and financial subsidies have boosted the renewable energy sectors in Mexico and Brazil and are expected to continue to drive industry growth and promote renewables.

GlobalData's report "North and South America Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2015" presents an in-depth analysis of the renewable energy policies across the major countries in North and South America. The report provides the current and future renewable energy targets and plans along with the present policy framework, giving a fair idea of overall growth potential of their renewable energy industry. The report also identifies major technology specific policies and incentives provided in each of these countries.

The material was prepared in July, 2015.
