Delivering on the clean energy economy: The role of policy in developing sucessful domestic solar and wind industries
1st November 2012
This working paper emerges from a collaboration of five leading research institutions: World Resources Institute (WRI), Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Öko Institut, Renmin University of China, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in the target countries. Researchers at each institution reviewed and gathered information from domestic and international data sources to create a richly nuanced but still comparable review of the development of these industries.
The assessment attempts to uncover in particular how policymakers have cultivated successes. Countries have pursued a range of policies to accomplish these goals and there is now sufficient history in the solar PV and wind industries to begin to draw conclusions about whether countries have met their goals and what policy steps have been effective along the way.
