ENCOURAGING RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT: A Handbook for International Energy Regulators (updated version)

Regulators and policymakers in the energy sector face new and exciting challenges presented by renewable energy (RE). While not new to the energy mix, renewable energy’s importance as part of the overall national and international energy supply is a relatively new phenomenon. Countries, their governments, regulators and populations are only just adjusting to this recent change in the energy world. This Handbook seeks to help international regulators as they navigate through it.

RE is gaining ground because it offers the possibility to address energy needs in a sustainable manner. Governments, the public, and local and international organizations are increasingly recognizing the individual, social and environmental harm that conventional energy sources cause as a result of greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy offers the promise of continued energy supply without comparable harm.
