Renewable Energy: Markets and Prospects by Regions

This information paper accompanies the IEA publication Deploying Renewables 2011: Best and Future Policy Practice and complements it by providing more detailed data and analysis on policies for deploying renewables. It also offers in-depth account of the regional markets and policy trends in all six focus regions, 56 countries in total. Each region is discussed with regard to recent market developments in the electricity, heat and transport sector; policy developments; IEA projections; an analysis of the mid-term (2030) potential of renewable energy technologies in these regions; and an analysis of the strategic drivers underpinning the deployment of renewable energy in each region.
