Renewable energy auctions in developing countries

1st January 2013

Topic(s): Domestic policy, Economics, Renewables

Renewable energy auctions are also known as ‘demand auctions’ or ‘procurement auctions’, whereby the government issues a call for tenders to install a certain capacity of renewable energy-based electricity. While studies have been published on feed-in-tariff schemes, literature on auctions is scarce. In an effort to fill the knowledge gap and take stock of experiences to date, this report analyses the design of renewable energy auctions in selected developing countries. The objective is to identify best practices and provide some insights to policy makers regarding the type and the design of auctions.
