REthinking energy: towards a new power system
REthinking energy: towards a new power system

28th September 2014

Topic(s): Renewables, Project financing

IRENA’s Rethinking Energy series explores the changes that are transforming the way energy is produced and used, and how this affects governments, businesses and individual citizens.

The first edition of REthinking Energy focuses on the power sector. It describes the trends driving this change, how the technology is evolving, who is financing it, and the wider benefits it will bring. Finally, it examines what an energy system powered by renewables might look like and how policy makers can further support the transformation.

Long-term contracting the way to renewable energy investment: lessons from Brazil applied to the United States
Long-term contracting the way to renewable energy investment: lessons from Brazil applied to the United States

11th July 2013

Topic(s): Renewables, Project financing

This comment from Emory Law Journal argues that the current legal framework in the United States is inefficient in stimulating continuous investment in electricity generation from renewable resources. The start-and-stop approach created by reliance on tax incentives, a patchwork of state laws, and the inability of many power producers to secure long-term power purchase agreements fail to provide potential investors with the long-term predictability they need. An examination of Brazil’s legal framework for investment in renewable energy demonstrates that a mechanism that assures a certain return on investment over a long period of time is crucial to promote continuous investment in renewable energy projects and related industries.
