Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency: Policy and Regulation

Law in transition online journal

Most transition countries have committed to increasing their use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency measures in order to meet growing energy demand, address energy security concerns and preserve the global environment. However, experience has shown that sustainable energy development requires a well-designed system of consistent and stimulating policies, a predictable legal regime and enhanced regulatory capacity. In order to promote the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency, this edition of Law in transition identifies various policy designs and support scheme mechanisms designed to help governments identify the most appropriate policy incentives for the sector. Highlighting a number of case studies, the journal offers an insight into the renewable energy markets in some of the EBRD’s countries of operations (including Estonia, Poland and Turkey) and an overview of essential energy efficiency measures and instruments in various industries. In the wake of growing energy security and global climate concerns, this issue aims to provide a discussion platform for experts, policy-makers, investors, consumers and other parties interested in sustainable energy development.
