Evaluating policies in support of the deployment of renewable power

1st January 2012

Topic(s): Renewables, Policy, law and regulation

This brief summarises common criteria and indicators that policy-makers can use to conduct evaluations of renewable power deployment policies. Five commonly assessed criteria are: effectiveness; efficiency; equity; institutional feasibility; and replicability. Under each criterion, it is important to establish measurable indicators that can be used to assess performance. This brief only looks at policy performance with respect to deployment, and not at the broader impacts of renewable energy technologies, such as environmental economic, energy security or technological impacts.
